Jolly tops Sink in special election

March 11, 2014 

WASHINGTON – David Jolly outpolled Alex Sink Tuesday to win Florida’s 13th Congressional District special election.

Republican Jolly collected 88,294 votes, or 49 percent, compared with Democrat Sink's 84,877 votes or 47 percent.

Libertarian Lucas Overby collected 8,799 votes or 5 percent with all 225 precincts 100 percent counted.

National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Greg Walden congratulated Jolly. “I want to extend a big congratulations to David Jolly on his victory tonight. David proved that Pinellas County voters are tired of the devastating policies of this administration. Throughout this campaign, David has outlined his vision on how to grow the economy, create jobs and deliver quality healthcare for Pinellas families. “Tonight, one of Nancy Pelosi’s most prized candidates was ultimately brought down because of her unwavering support for ObamaCare, and that should be a loud warning for other Democrats running coast to coast. Pinellas County voters have made the right choice; David will be a dedicated and thoughtful representative for them in Congress.”
