Ted Yoho, political newcomer and veterinarian to Central Florida animals large and small, narrowly leads 12-term Rep. Cliff Stearns in a redistricted House primary with 100 percent of precincts reporting.
This is a song about him:
The winner of tea-party straw polls in Gainesville, Gilchrist, and Lake City, Yoho ran a TV ad comparing career politicians to pigs in slop, promising new leadership and a repeal of “Obamacare.” He recorded a YouTube video with a George W. Bush impersonator in which they bemoaned the Obama administration.
Yoho leads Stearns by 829 votes, according to Associated Press totals. Stearns has not conceded.
