Negron Republican former state Rep. Joe Negron won the special election to succeed Ken Pruitt in the state senate tonigt. No big surprise that he beat a perennial candidate, Bill Ramos, whom he outspent at least 14-to-one, but a win is a win and this district did not have to be a GOP lock.

State GOP chairman Jim Greer: “I am pleased to congratulate Joe Negron on his election to the Florida |Senate. His overwhelming victory in a battleground district that President Obama carried is a tribute to his solid reputation as a talented and |qualified statesman and devout servant of the people. I am confident that Senator Negron will work diligently with Republican leaders in the Florida Senate to carry on the legacy of Republican leadership in this district."
