Ted Deutch (D) - 43,255 - 62.1%.
Ed Lynch Jr. (R) - 24,539 - 35.2%.
Jim McCormick (I) - 1,905 - 2.7%.
Congressman Wexler (D) who resigned a few months ago to pursue personal interests, won reelection in this district with 66.2% of the vote in November of 2008, while Ed Lynch Jr. (also the Republican candidate in 2008) received just 27.2% of the vote. President Obama also won this district with close to 65% of the vote; while remaining Democratic, this district has turned towards Republicanism, just a bit, but still.
On a final note:
Just 19% of the Democratic voters who supported Wexler in 2008 came out yesterday to support Deutch. However, close to 29% of Republican voters who supported Lynch in 2008 came out yesterday to support Lynch again. That could be a precursor for the upcoming November elections.
