ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — It was a major upset in the race for the Orange-Osceola state attorney Tuesday.
Incumbent Jeff Ashton lost to newcomer Aramis Ayala.
"I'm a fighter, and at some point goodness does win. At some point, what you believe in, wholesome, what's right, what stands, can win, and I never gave up on that," said Ayala.
"The voters decided today that the price of the State Attorney's seat is $1.4 million in lies. I'm deeply disappointed in this result but stand by the good work of my office and the folks who work there," said Ashton, in a statement.
He did not speak after his loss.
There are no Republican opponents.
