Democratic Senator Bill Nelson defeated Republican challenger Katherine Harris.

The Democrats won the 16th district seat, formerly held by Republican Mark Foley, who resigned over improper e-mails he sent to underage boys.

They also gained the 22nd, which borders Mr Foley's district. The Republicans held onto Ms Harris's old district, the 13th.

Republican candidate Charlie Crist held the governorship for the Republicans, after Jeb Bush, the president's brother, stepped down after serving a maximum two terms.

Incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson held his seat against Republican Katherine Harris. Mel Martinez holds the other seat for the Republicans.
