Controversial Congressman Alan Grayson has defeated his primary challenger Nick Ruiz in their Democratic primary in Florida’s 9th Congressional District.
Instant Analysis: This one was never in question, Ruiz was able to get a couple of media hits here and there but Grayson was able to defeat him with his nationwide name ID, and his base helping him get out the vote in the 9th. He’ll now face the winner of the 9th Congressional, GOP primary Carol Platt who was also a winner tonight. Expect Platt to “take the higher road” in her attempt to win this race. Very similar to what Daniel Webster did in 2010. This will depend on Grayson making those unforced mistakes in order for it to be successful.
