Democratic state Senate candidate Deborah Gianoulis has conceded in her race against Republican Party chairman John Thrasher.

“It’s been a busy day,” Thrasher told The Florida Independent. “It’s been a busy six months. This election is important for our state, but even more so for America. This determines the direction our country is headed.”

Thrasher also credited the tea party for its support of the Republican cause: “The tea party is great, very supportive. They believe in much of what the Republican Party does, and we’re going to work together.”

Feinberg a no-show at Florida Senate committee

Oil spill claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg was on the agenda to appear today before the Senate Agriculture Committee. Committee chairman Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, had pledged before the start of this legislative session to bring Feinberg, and possibly BP representatives, to answer questions about the claims process. Instead, what the committee got was a letter from Feinberg explaining that he couldn't make it, and that he would like to return some time in May to take questions from Florida lawmakers.
