Who qualified for and who won Florida races?



Who qualified?: A flurry of candidates qualified for dozens of state races before Friday's noon deadline, creating a few surprises and prompting conspiracy theories among some political observers. The tea party is at the center of the controversy, as 19 of its candidates submitted election paperwork to run in the Legislature and one Cabinet-level race.

Check out the state's Candidate Tracking database to see who is running and their campaign finance activity.

Who was elected?: In all, 35 Florida candidates were elected or re-elected this year with no effort other than filling out a form and paying a filing fee.
