The first election after Obamacare passed

Almost any politician in America would covet the 62 percent-plus victory Congressman-elect Ted Deutch racked up in Tuesday's special election in Broward and Palm Beach counties. And Democrats were crowing Wednesday.

. . . But in South Florida, Republicans saw glimmers of hope in the results -- at least in the Broward part of the district. That's because voters in central and southwestern Palm Beach County gave Deutch 64.2 percent of their votes Tuesday while Deutch won a comfortable, but much smaller, 53.8 percent of the vote in North and Central Broward over Republican Ed Lynch.

. . . Republican voters are outnumbered more than 2-1 in the 19th Congressional District.

The district is overwhelmingly composed of Jewish and Democratic retirees.

Republican voters are outnumbered more than 2-1 in the 19th Congressional District.

The Democrat won by less than 2-1.

If a Democrat running on Obama's record can't increase his totals in this district, Democrats are in trouble.
