Dorworth, potential future House Speaker, loses a shocker in razor-thin Central Florida race

The projected future Speaker of the Florida House, Rep. Chris Dorworth, R-Lake Mary, is in the fight of his life to hold on to his seat—a stunning development for one of the most powerful legislators in the state.

In House District 29, Dorworth was losing by 37 votes out of 73,461 cast as of 12:30 a.m., a less than 0.1% lead for Democratic challenger Mike Clelland. The 50.03 to 49.97 percent race is within the recount margin and 100 percent of precincts in Seminole County have reported results.

The outcome is surprising because Dorworth was one of the Legislature’s most prolific fundraisers, raking in more than $1 million dollars for his campaign and through his committees. Clelland has only raised about $70,000 in donations to his campaign.
