This is a long held Republican seat, and polling indicates the district is split 1/3 Republican, 1/3 Democrat, and 1/3 Independent. It will be interesting to see if the Democrat, Alex Sink, or the Republican, David Jolly wins the special election.

Floridians had better get used to the idea of their
state slowly sinking under rising ocean levels.
Head for the high ground while you have a chance!

Oh, wait, there is no high ground.

Ah, not to worry. It is going to take thousands of years for that to happen. Washington...I guess I would be more worried about a volcanic eruption which will happen before Florida disappears...

Be Jolly and DRAIN THE SINK. Ms. Sink is a perennial candidate too liberal. She gives Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco another vote.

Ms Sink is running way behind. The special will go Republican. It is not a bell weather event. There are elections in November that will indicate what effect the Obamascam will have on the 2016 election. The Florida Democrats pretty much disconnect themselves from Washington.
