Florida Legislature

NPR's David Welna reports from Tallahassee, where the Republican-controlled Florida House of Representatives has approved its own slate of presidential electors. Today was the nominal deadline for states to name its electors, who will vote on the 18th for president. Democrats in the Sunshine State argue that the GOP is attempting to "hijack" the election. But Republicans say that they are going forward to insure that Florida does not lose its say in the Electoral College.
