Newly elected Republican Rep. David Jolly of Florida, right, poses for a ceremonial swearing-in with his mother Judy Jolly and House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, March 13, 2014. Earlier this week, Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink in a special election that Republicans cast as a referendum on President Barack Obama and his unpopular health care law. The Tampa-area district had been considered a toss-up. Jolly fills the open seat that had been held for decades by Republican C.W. Bill Young who died in October. The 41-year-old Jolly has long experience in Washington, first as an aide to Young and then as a lobbyist. Republicans now hold 233 seats in the House to the Democrats’ 199. There are three vacancies. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
