Jennings asks court to postpone case

Democrat Christine Jennings is asking a Florida court to hold off on making a decision on her lawsuit over the Florida 13 congressional race until federal investigators finish their inquiry.

The U.S. House, which has ultimate authority in the matter, has asked the Government Accountability Office to examine why touchscreen machines failed to record 18,000 votes.
