Rubio defeats Murphy to retain Senate seat

Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican who failed in his bid for the GOP nomination for president, held onto his U.S. Senate seat by beating Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy. Democrats were once optimistic about Murphy's Florida bid, but later largely pulled all advertising in the expensive state in order to finance buys in other contests.

Florida voters will be asked for the second time in two years to approve a constitutional amendment that would legalize medical use of marijuana and broaden access beyond the limited therapeutic applications approved by the legislature. But the push continued for millions of more votes expected to be finalized on Tuesday. "That means the future of the Supreme Court will be determined by the Florida Senate seat", he said in a statement. "That's not hyperbole. That's simply fact". Before the polls closed, Trump's campaign was already beginning to spread possible excuses for a loss. Murphy also called out Rubio for missed votes and intelligence briefings while running for president, and questioned whether he would serve his full six-year term.

Florida is the largest swing state, with 29 electoral votes, and there's little chance Trump can win the presidency without it. "Ladies and gentlemen, this goes to your character", Biden said.

National Democrats picked up on the struggles of Murphy's campaign early on in the general election.

During the last day of early voting on Sunday, Rubio looked confident.

"This is an 81,000-vote improvement, which completely erases the margin that Romney lost by", Dunn said. We have our eye on the top of the ticket, sure, but we're also watching down-ballot races, wonky initiatives, and reactions from voters and the campaigns.

Republicans were expected to maintain a majority of the seats in the state's congressional delegation, but a few districts bear watching Tuesday.

Rubio defeated Democrat Rep. Patrick Murphy, a two-term congressman with a reputation as a moderate.

Rubio is easily one of the most eloquent defenders of life and a Christian worldview-as many Republicans will remember from his presidential run (see this GOP debate clip). They need five seats if Trump wins. And they were looking to get closer to parity in the Senate, which now features 26 Republicans and 14 Democrats.

"From the beginning, Rubio had to walk on eggshells", said Susan MacManus, a political science professor at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Rubio has said Murphy unequivocally supports Clinton, a candidate that most people don't trust.
