Tallahassee, Florida --
Turnout here in North Florida has been steady all day, and that is potentially good news for Congressman Allen Boyd., who finds himself in a very unusual spot this election.
The Second Congressional District here in Florida is one of four Florida seats the National GOP targeted in their attempt to take over Congress. The seat stretches between Panama City and runs east of Tallahassee. Democrat Allen Boyd has held the seat since 1996, and says this is the toughest race he has ever seen.
“If we get large turnouts, and folks come and express their views about their vision for the country, that’s all we can ask for’” say Body. ”We’ve done our best to deliver our message, about what we tried to do in the past and where we think we need to go from here, and ah, if the people speak, I’ll be contented.”
Challenging Boyd is Steve Southerland, a Panama City Funeral Director, who is making his first run for elective office.
