With their victories in November, Republicans Santiago, from Deltona, and Combee, from Polk City, are now each two-term House members. Santiago took nearly 58 percent of the vote Volusia County’s House District 27, while Combee won re-election with almost 65 percent of the vote for House District 39, covering Polk and Osceola counties.
