TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Incumbents are escaping nearly unscathed in Florida's legislative races, although state Rep. Chris Dorworth, slated to become House speaker in two years, is in the fight of his political life.
 
A Lake Mary Republican haunted by personal and financial issues, Dorworth trailed Democratic challenger Mike Clelland. With nearly 80 percent of the vote counted Tuesday night, Clelland clung to a 158-vote lead.

Incumbents led in virtually all other legislative races.
 
Democrats had hoped to pick up the needed seats to slow down what has been a runaway GOP Legislature in recent years. Republicans went into the election controlling the Senate by a 28-12 margin and had 81 of the 120 seats in the House of Representatives.
