Cliff Stearns not conceding yet to Ted Yoho in Congressional District 3

By on August 15, 2012

Rep. Cliff Stearns was headed toward a stunning primary defeat last night, undone by a tea party candidate named Ted Yoho.

“I’m going to thank God,” said Yoho. “I’m going to do a Tebow right here.”

Yoho, unknown in Florida political circles until now, has lived in North Central Florida for more than 3 decades. He ran an aggressive campaign against Stearns, including a TV ad showing men in suits feeding from a pig trough.

Politico reports Stearns trails by more than 800 votes but is refusing to concede.
