Republican Congressman David Jolly

Last night Republican David Jolly won the special election race in Florida’s 13th district over former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink. Jolly won the election with 49 percent of the vote to Sink’s 47 percent. Barack Obama won Florida District 13 by 4 points in 2008 and 2 points in 2012.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz sent out this rapid response statement after the loss.

“Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican congressional district that they’ve comfortably held for nearly 60 years. Tonight, Republicans fell short of their normal margin in this district because the agenda they are offering voters has a singular focus – that a majority of voters oppose – repealing the Affordable Care Act that would return us to the same old broken health care system.”
