Democrat Jared Moskowitz grabbed a rare open congressional seat and will be representing South Florida.
Unofficial results show Moskowitz secured 53% of the vote to Boca Raton financial planner Republican Joe Budd‘s 45%. Two no-party candidates, businesswoman Christine Scott and former CIA agent and military veteran Mark Napier drew 1% and .4% of the vote, respectively.
He succeeds Rep. Ted Deutch, who has represented Florida’s 23rd Congressional District that extends from Boca Raton to Fort Lauderdale since 2010.
Moskowitz won his first elected office at age 25, on the Parkland City Commission and has served at numerous levels of government since.
