Twelve-term Rep. Cliff Stearns trails his Republican primary opponent in Florida with 100 percent of precincts reporting.
Tea partyer Ted Yoho, a veterinarian and political newcomer, leads Stearns by 829 votes in a shocking upset, the Associated Press reported. Redistricting forced Stearns into a geographically larger, newly drawn district stretching north and west of his old territory, into Florida's panhandle.
The winner of tea-party straw polls in Gainesville, Gilchrist and Lake City, Yoho ran a TV ad comparing career politicians to pigs in slop, promising new leadership and a repeal of "Obamacare." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkVG1StqOzQ&feature=plcp He recorded a YouTube video with a George W. Bush impersonator in which they bemoaned the Obama administration.
