Tonight the state of Florida will once again be at the center of the political universe.

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are locked into a virtual tie. However, one thing we do know and that is whoever wins the Sunshine State’s 25 electoral votes, is likely be the 45th President of the United States.
