Late Out of Florida

August 24, 2010 6:39 p.m.

Alas, it’s looking like Allen Boyd is going to hold on and beat Al Lawson in the FL-2 Dem primary. But, man, it was awfully close. More big news is what now appears to be the almost certain win of Rick Scott over longtime Republican officeholder Bill McCollum. Unconfirmed reports have McCollum preparing a concession.

Late Update: Or not. McCollumites now saying their go won’t be conceding. And AP calls it for Boyd.

Later Update: McCollum’s campaign is saying there’s no clear winner and we’ll have to wait for the morning — which may be a coded way of saying he’s coming out for marijuana legalization, or perhaps just that all the folks in his campaign are smoking some right now.

Even Later Update: AP says put away the bong guys, calls it for Rick Scott.
