Linda talks with Senator James E. "Jim" King, Jr. the Majority Leader (Republican, 8th District) of the Florida State Senate about the select joint committee's call for a special session of the Florida State Legislature to select presidential electors, "as soon as practicable." If the Republican-dominated legislature names a slate of 25 electors pledged to Bush, it may give Florida Governor Jeb Bush the opportunity to sign off on the measure, which would make his brother the president.
