Disputed election appears headed to court

This morning the Florida Elections Canvassing Commission officially certified election results across the state _ including in the 13th Congressional District race between Vern Buchanan and Christine Jennings. Those results show Buchanan winning by 369 votes. But Jennings has scheduled a 11 a.m. press conference in Tallahassee, where it is expected she will announce that she's headed to court to contest the results based on the fact that more than 18,000 voters failed to make a choice in that race.

And if Jennings doesn't sue _ other outside groups, including the People for American Way Foundation, are hinting that they may jump into court as well. Reggie Mitchell of the Foundation declared a lawsuit "imminent."

(UPDATE--Jennings did file a lawsuit this morning in Tallahassee. More here.)
