Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink on Tuesday in a Tampa-area House district where President Barack Obama's health care overhaul got its first test ahead of November's midterm elections and both sides spent millions auditioning national strategies.
Lucas Overby sits in the lobby of a retirement condominium on the Gulf of Mexico, surrounded by a dozen senior citizens, all old enough to be his grandparents. He's running for Congress, and every vote counts when there's only a handful of days before Tuesday's special election.
Jolly thanked Sink and Overby and said it was "OK" that tens of thousands of others voted for his opponents.
"While this campaign at times seemed to be partisan, your next congressman is not partisan," he said.
