FL House Results: Alan Grayson's Good News

August 14, 2012
FL-06 [9:50 p.m.] With 78 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press called the Florida's 6th District race for attorney Ron DeSantis. DeSantis had 40 percent of the vote to state legislator Fred Costello's 22 percent. Three other Republican candidates took between 10 and 15 percent of the vote. The Club for Growth had supported DeSantis, and congratulated him on his victory. "Ron DeSantis will fight to limit government and cut spending - and he'll stand up to the big spenders in both parties," said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola in a statement. "Ron clearly articulated the pro-growth message which is why he won a resounding victory tonight." The newly drawn coastal district leans Republican, and DeSantis is expected to win the general election. FL-19 [9:34 p.m.] Republican radio host Trey Radel won the primary to replace GOP Rep. Connie Mack in Florida's 19th District Tuesday night, fighting off a six-person field to secure the nomination. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Radel led his nearest challenger, Chauncey Goss, 30 percent to 22 percent, with the remainder divided between the other four candidates. The Associated Press called the race for Radel. Mack's run for Senate opened up the safe seat, and Radel is now heavily favored to take the seat in Congress. FL-09 [9:10 p.m.] Former Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson will get the challenger he wanted: With 91 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press called Florida's 9th District GOP primary for radio host Todd Long. Long had 47 percent of the vote compared to 28 percent for Osceola County Commissioner John Quinones, while two other candidates divided the remainder of the vote. Since Grayson didn't face a competitive primary of his own, he cut a television ad attacking Quinones, and -- along with Democratic outside group House Majority PAC, which spent $81,000 -- targeted the Republican with mailings as well. The Puerto Rican Quinones could have posed a greater challenge to Grayson in a district with a quickly growing Puerto Rican population. Grayson is favored to win the newly-drawn Democratic-leaning district in November.
