Republican Laurel Lee will represent Florida’s newest congressional seat. The former Florida Secretary of State defeated Democrat Alan Cohn in Florida’s 15th Congressional District.
Lee held a healthy lead, amassing 58.5% of all votes to Cohn’s near 41.5%.
The open congressional seat drew a number of political contenders to file earlier this year. Ultimately, Lee, a former Circuit Court Judge and longtime member of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration, emerged from a crowded GOP field that included two state lawmakers and a pair of decorated veterans.
Cohn, a veteran broadcaster, beat an experienced political consultant and a Democratic National Convention media veteran.
