Insiders prepare for election malfunction
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Concern that there may not be a decision on election night is putting a new focus on congressional elections in Florida and elsewhere. If no presidential candidate receives 270 electoral votes, the ultimate decision would be up to the U.S. House of Representatives. Florida has 14 Republican and 13 Democratic members of the U.S. House. But the most vulnerable is House District 26, which is held by U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, a Democrat. The Florida House went so far as to name GOP electors just in case Florida’s election outcome and the outcome of the race were still tied up in court.
