Rick Scott Wins Governorship, Full Florida Sweep Complete


Democrat Alex Sink conceded this morning after failing to pick up enough votes to turn around a lead of less than 100,000 held by her rival, Republican Rick Scott.

“Nothing in my life has honored me as much as your willingness and the willingness of everyone in Florida to put their faith in my plan to turn around the state of Florida,” Scott said in a victory speech today.

Scott’s victory makes the sweep official: The GOP won every major contested office last night, including the governorship, all three elected cabinet positions, the U.S. Senate race, and four U.S. House races — while also making gains in the state house and state senate.
