New Congress brings a less lopsided Florida delegation



With Patrick Murphy officially the winner in Florida's 18th Congressional district, it's worth looking at the makeup of the delegation. Democrats have four new voices -- joining Murphy is Alan Grayson, Lois Frankel and Joe Garcia -- and pull closer in parity with Republicans.

There are now 17 Republicans and 10 Democrats, including two new districts. The current delegation is 19 R, 6 D.

The new Republicans headed to Washington are Ted Yoho (3), Ron DeSantis (6) and Trey Raydel (19).
