GOP to have veto-proof majority in Legislature

Republicans in the Florida Senate have built a 28-12 majority while the GOP is expected to break 80 seats in the House. Both figures would give the party a veto-proof majority.

From a statement from Speaker-Designate Dean Cannon: "Their victories in key races tonight further solidify the Republican majority in the Florida Senate and are a true testament to Senator Haridopolos’ leadership, conviction and tireless work ethic. It is clear that Florida Republicans are looking for conservative leaders willing to make tough but principled choices."
