TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- One thing is guaranteed during Florida's primary -- at least one of Florida's U.S. Representatives won't be working in Washington after January.
In a rare battle of incumbents, 10-term Congressman John Mica is facing freshman Rep. Sandy Adams in Tuesday's Republican primary. The race has become increasingly nasty.
It's a race that was set up because of the once-a-decade redrawing of political maps that the Legislature conducts after the federal census. And it's become brutal. Adams calls Mica a big-spending politician who is cozy with President Barack Obama. Mica says Adams has used dirty campaign tactics, and he says her record in the state House doesn't match her conservative rhetoric.
While six other House incumbents have primary opponents, all are considered favorites to win.
