Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org

"Florida needs to demonstrate that it is a functioning democracy by getting to the bottom of the problem in the District 13 Congressional Race in Sarasota County. Republican Vern Buchanan now leads Christine Jennings by only 369 votes.

David Dill "Is Florida Ready for Democracy?" on HuffPo.
