Florida's divided vote on Rangel censure



The U.S. House this evening voted 333-79 to censure Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y. (story) and here's how the Florida delegation sided:

The Republicans voted in favor while Democrats were divided. Voting against it were Reps. Alan Grayson of Orlando and Corrine Brown of Jacksonville. Voting in favor were Reps. Kathy Castor of Tampa, Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston and Ron Klein of Boca Raton. Some members missed (roll call here).

After Rangel's short speech, he got a standing ovation from supporters, including Brown, who sat in the front row.
