Palm Bay voters have spoken, and Republicans choose Randy Fine, the incumbent, as their candidate going forward to the general election to face Democrat Phil Moore for the Florida House District 53 seat.
Shortly after mail ballots and early voting results were published, Fine claimed victory. The results did not change much as election day numbers came in.
Adversary Marcie Adkins received 5,740 votes, losing to Fine by landslide. A statement was released by Adkins’ campaign conceding the race to Fine.
The win did not come without a price, though, for both sides.
