Ten-term Congressman John Mica has defeated freshman U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams following a tough primary battle that pitted two Florida Republican incumbents against each other because of redistricting.

Mica was winning 60 percent to Adams' 40 percent with 80 percent of precincts reporting.

The Republicans faced each other Tuesday after redistricting put both of their homes in the 7th congressional district, which includes parts of Orlando and areas northeast of the city.

The race between the two Republicans featured blistering attack ads and celebrity endorsements.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee backed Mica while former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin supported Adams.
