Levy's elevation to the senate
by the general assembly necessi-

the election held October 6, 1845.
Thirty days later the returns' re-
ceived by the secretary of state In
Tallahassee gave. Edward Carring-
ton Cabell a majority of 51 votes.
The apparent election of Cabell,
a Whig, shocked the .self-compla-
centt Democrats who had carried
the state by a tremendous' ma-
jority' in the previous election.
Cabell's popularity accounted in
part for his success. Many Flor-
Idians, may &have voted against
the Democratic candidate, William

against .Levy's "failure to accept a
seat in the house. Whatever the
reason for his. good fortune, Ca-

Representative Cabell took their
respective places in the 29th con-
gress on Decemiber 1, 1845. Flor-
ida's first senators held their of-
ficest until thd end of their terms,
Sbut Cabell's place was soon con-
tested by Brockenbrough.
