TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A look at Florida's troubled election this past fall is bringing lots of finger-pointing and back-tracking.
Top party officials, two election supervisors and two legislators discussed the 2012 election at The Associated Press' 19th annual legislative planning meeting.
Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, said everyone from legislators to local election supervisors deserve blame for the long lines and other problems that delayed Florida's votes from getting counted quickly.
Democrats, however, say 2011 changes made by the GOP-controlled Legislature - including cutting back the days set aside for early voting - helped create a fiasco.
Republican Party of Florida chairman Lenny Curry insisted the problems were isolated to a few counties. Curry also denied that changes made by state lawmakers were partisan and intended to sway the outcome.
