MIAMI (AP) - Democratic Rep. Al Lawson has been re-elected to Congress from Florida.
Lawson won a second term Tuesday representing the 5th District, which extends from Tallahassee to Jacksonville in north Florida.
Lawson is a longtime former state legislator and insurance agent. He defeated former Jacksonville mayor Alvin Brown in the Democratic primary in August.
On Tuesday, Lawson defeated Republican Virginia Fuller, a registered nurse and pediatric-care facility operator who moved to Florida about two years ago after decades in California.
