WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Freshman Republican Congressman Daniel Webster has survived a close race to return to Washington from central Florida.
Webster's narrow win comes despite the fact that Demings out-fundraised her opponent and is well-known as a former Orlando police chief.
Webster is a former speaker of the state House and majority leader in the Senate. He is a hero to many Republicans for defeating a brash liberal congressman, Alan Grayson, in 2010. Grayson is going back to Washington, though -- he won a newly created seat Tuesday.
