Republicans and Democrats are spending millions of dollars on Tuesday's special congressional election in Florida, a race seen by leaders on both sides as the first real test of the parties' broader strategies for this fall.
In the 2012 general election, more people voted by mail in Pinellas County than in any other Florida county and that could have a major impact on next week's special election to replace the late Congressman C.W. Bill Young.
David Jolly took an early lead Tuesday in the Republican primary to fill the seat of U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, who spent 43 years in Congress and died in October, according to preliminary returns counted.
A longtime aide to U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young captured the Republican nomination Tuesday for a special election to fill the House seat of the late congressman.
A longtime aide to U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young clinched the Republican nomination Tuesday for a special election to fill the House seat of the late lawmaker.
Republican voters in a large swath of Pinellas County will pick one of three candidates Tuesday to run in the general election to fill the congressional seat of U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, who died in October.
Rep. C.W. Bill Young, the longest serving Republican in Congress, died Friday night at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda. The Florida representative was 82 years old.
"At a time of great uncertainty and what I see as instability in the future direction of U.S. defense policy, I believe we need to keep our national security team intact, ready to respond to any threats to our readiness," Mr. Young said. "I appreciate the confidence the speaker and Chairman Rogers have shown in me to bring before the House good appropriations bills that protect our nation from threats abroad, continue to support our all-volunteer force and to care for our fallen heroes and their families when they return home, many with injuries from which they will never fully recover."
