David Rivera wins; Joe Garcia concedes in speech

Democrat Joe Garcia hadn't called Republican David Rivera when we spoke to him about half an hour ago, and state elections officials haven't officially called the 25th Congressional District race, but it's over: Garcia gave a concession speech in West Kendall about an hour ago, shortly after Rivera, celebrating at the Biltmore, spoke about his decisive victory to replace Republican Mario Diaz-Balart.

It was a big night at the Biltmore: Rivera also introduced Marco Rubio, whose triumphant speech was broadcast on national networks as the face of Tuesday's powerful GOP tidal wave sweeping the country.
