Light voter turnout for primary election

Posted: Updated:
TALLAHASSEE (AP) -

Polls have now closed across Florida after a light turnout for the state's primary election.
 
A Republican U.S. Senate showdown highlighted the primary Tuesday.
 
Republicans are choosing between U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV, former Congressman Dave Weldon and tea party favorite Mike McCalister in the GOP Senate race. Democrats and Republicans are also voting in primaries for congressional, legislative and local races.
 
Mack is a heavy favorite. His father, Connie Mack III, is a former senator and his great-grandfather was a Hall of Fame baseball manager and he has benefited from a better-financed campaign. The winner faces Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson in November.
 
Nelson is seeking a third term in the U.S. Senate. Nelson holds the seat that Mack's father had for two terms before retiring.

The polls are open today until 7 p.m. As of 4:30 p.m., about 12.56 percent of voters had showed up to polling stations in Hillsborough County.

You must vote at your local polling station. For more, visit your supervisor of elections website.
