Tallahassee, Florida (AP) --

Florida is a key battleground in the struggle over control of the U.S. House.

Five or six of the state's 25 seats could change hands next
Tuesday.

Republicans hold a 15-10 advantage in the state going into
Election Day. They believe they can take back both central Florida
seats they lost two years ago and a third in South Florida the
Democrats took from them in 2006.

The GOP also is targeting seven-term Democratic Rep. Allen Boyd
in north Florida.

Democrats hope to hold what they have and grab one or two seats
in South and central Florida.

University of Central Florida political scientist Aubrey Jewett
said it'll be a good night for Republicans, but they may not sweep
all of the Florida congressional races they've targeted.
