Task force to meet again on Sarasota race
The three-member task force formed to investigate the disputed Sarasota area congressional election met Tuesday morning for more than 90 minutes behind closed doors.
Rep. Charles Gonzalez, D-Texas, the chairman, said the group will meet again in the next two weeks to decide whether to proceed with an investigation.
Republican Vern Buchanan was sworn in to the U.S. House in January, but Democrat Christine Jennings is disputing her loss in the courts and in Congress.
Jennings, who attended the meeting, said she was not disappointed with the outcome.
