Florida voters allowed Marco Rubio to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate during Tuesday's election, winning against his challenger Patrick Murphy by a margin of 52 to 45.

As of 8:17 p.m., the state Division of Elections had reported on 66 percent of Florida's turnout, with 4.3 million votes going to the Republican incumbent. Rubio won a second term against Murphy, a Democratic U.S. representative from Jupiter, who unsuccessfully tried to tie the Cuban American to the top of the Republican ticket.
