TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida voters narrowly chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in a state he needed for a path to the White House.
The state’s 29 electoral voters are the most among swing states. Florida also overwhelmingly passed a medical marijuana constitutional amendment and elected 10 new members to the U.S. House, including former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, who will go to Washington in his first victory as a Democrat.
Florida voters also decided to amend the state constitution to legalize medical marijuana, broadening access to pot beyond the limited therapeutic uses approved by the Legislature two years ago. Two years ago, a similar measure failed.
