Florida voters cast their ballots in a primary election Tuesday for a U.S. Senate seat that Donald Trump lost in November.
Trump won the state’s presidential election in November with about 55% of the vote and the winner will likely take the seat currently held by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.
Democrats held a commanding victory in the statewide primary election in which Trump was declared the winner with about 57% of votes cast.
Trump, who had been trailing Rubio in the polls before the race ended, won with almost 59% of precincts reporting.
Florida’s Democratic primary, a contest that saw a crowded field of candidates, featured some of the biggest name names in politics, including former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and U.N. ambassador Samantha Power.
The contest drew a record turnout, with nearly one million votes cast, according to the state Democratic Party.
Rubio and Trump both lost in the November election.
The Florida primary was seen as a harbinger of a possible Clinton-Trump ticket.
Rubio was considered a front-runner in the state before the election, but Trump eventually picked up the endorsement of the U.K. Prime Minister.
