Sarasota stayed mostly red on election night, and it elected two Republicans to its county commission.

Christine Robinson took the District 3 seat of the Sarasota County Commission with 55% of the vote, handily defeating Democrat Jennifer Cohen. Charles Hines, who ran unopposed, easily sailed into the District 5 seat.


On the Democratic side, voters elected Bill Nelson, a Democrat, back to the United States Senate with just over 50% of the vote, handing challenger Connie Mack a repeated defeat similar to those he saw throughout the state.
