Florida election is an embarrassment says state House speaker-designate
Florida House speaker-designate Will Weatherford told WMNFâs Janelle Irwin the Florida legislature needs to do something about Floridaâs election process.
Some of the blame has been pinned on changes to Floridaâs voting law that cut back the number of early voting days from 12 to 8. Itâs not clear whether that change will be revisited, but during an interview on CNN, Secretary of State Ken Detzner said the state could have done better and will do better.

"There's a lot of disappointment with the way that the elections process went down. I think the legislature can probably take some of the blame for that. But at the end of the day we're going to go back and look at what's going on. We're going to take a very close look. I think the fact that Florida still is a state that hasn't decided how many votes have been cast and who won and who lost is an embarrassment and we shouldn't be in that situation and it's my job and all of our jobs to go back and see how we can do it better."
