TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- For all the talk about tea parties and
fresh faces, only two of Florida's eight new U.S. House members can
be considered "outsiders."

The others elected Tuesday are veteran politicians starting with
Republican Daniel Webster, a former Florida House speaker and
Senate majority leader.

Republicans Sandy Adams, David Rivera and Dennis Ross and
Democrat Frederica Wilson are current or former state lawmakers.
Republican Richard Nugent is a sheriff.

Even outsiders Allen West and Steve Southerland, both
Republicans, have been governmental insiders although not of the
elective kind. West was an Army officer and Southerland headed a
state panel that oversees the funeral industry.

    The election of Frederica Wilson to the U.S. Congress has to be one of the worst things that has happened to Florida in 100 years. This woman is fool, she will embarass Florida to no end in DC. Let's hire a clown and send them instead.

    If you guys don't get the job done then we'll vote you out next time. Now go do what we hired you to do.... and remember who you work for.

    Good, especially happy to see Grayson out of the job. What a total idiot.
