Bill Posey Wins Republican Primary Over Scott Caine

U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., scored a win on Tuesday in the Republican primary.

First elected to Congress in 2008, Posey has not seen a primary challenge in more than a decade. That changed this year as Pose faced retired Air Force Col. Scott Caine on Tuesday.

With 98 percent of the vote counted, Posey took 63 percent while Caine pulled 37 percent.

Representing a secure Republican district, Posey will have the edge in November. Electrical engineer Jim Kennedy will be the Democratic candidate challenging Posey in the general election.
