Primary Results

In Florida, the races that caught national attention did not produce any upsets: Marco Rubio will be the GOP candidate for Senate facing Rep. Patrick Murphy for the Democrats.  (By the way, Mr. Rubio hinted he might not stay in the Senate if elected.  2020 beckons…)

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz, who had issues when she was the head of the DNC, won her race against Tim Canova.

In Miami-Dade County, the mayor’s race will go to a run-off in November between incumbent Carlos Gimenez and Raquel Regalado (oh joy, more robocalls).  And it looks like there will be some run-offs in the school board election as well.

The sun shone on the constitutional amendment to allow tax breaks for solar power.  So that’s good.
