Judge rejects Rep. John P. Julien’s challenge of Rep. Barbara Watson’s win in HD 107
Chief Circuit Judge Charles Francis on Wednesday in Tallahassee upheld Rep. Barbara Watson’s narrow win over a fellow lawmaker, Rep. John Patrick Julien.
Francis said Julien failed to present evidence to prove his allegation that Watson won as the result of fraudulent absentee ballots being cast for her.
The two incumbents faced off due to redistricting that put both of their homes in the same district. The Democratic nominee is virtually assured of winning the general election against two write-in candidates.
Julien had alleged some absentee ballots were cast by people who are dead or now say they never voted.
