Members of the Republican Party are pacing the floor as the numbers come in from the state of Florida.

The former chair of the Cape County Republican Central Committee Holly Lintner, said the feeling in the room is uneasiness.

“We need to win Florida and we’re bouncing back and forth,” Lintner said.

Florida and Ohio are states that Trump needs to win.

“So far those are the only swing states that we’ve been kind of watching,” she said.

Florida is still too early to call.
