Though I would not be surprised if Alan Grayson (D) won the seat, it is not an automatic safe seat for the dems. It is a heavily democratic area but it is also heavily hispanic and John Quinones (R), Grayson’s opponent, has been elected to portions of that district quite a few times and is known and liked by the hispanics.
They would like one of their own representing them.
This district is not 50% African American. A black candidate would lose big time.
Reported Ethnicity: 38.4% White,
49.3% Black, 1.6% Asian,
0.3% Native American,
Been represented by Corinne Brown since '93? We talkin' the same district. Grayson ran out of the 8th, a much more Republican oriented area.
