With all of precincts reporting in the House District 58 special election to replace Democrat Mike Scionti, Democrat Janet Cruz has defeated Republican Hunter Chamberlin by an overwhelming 65-35% margin.
Cruz took in 2,385 votes to Chamberlin's 1,288. Write in Democratic candiate Jose Vasquez got only 19 votes.
The verdict isn't suprising, considering that Cruz raised a reported $54,000 compared to Chamberlin's paltry $2,000.
Voter turnout for the special election called by Governor Charlie Crist after Scionti resigned from his seat in December was 5.75%.
We'll have more on the election tomorrow.
