Kenneth (Buddy) MacKay for a U.S. Senate seat. In a controversial referendum that stirred deep resentment among Latinos, Florida voted overwhelmingly to declare English the state's official language. With more than half the ballots counted, the measure was winning 83% to 17%.

A day after vowing to keep Gary Hart's name off the Florida primary ballot, the chairman of the state Democratic Party said he has changed his mind. "At first I felt a little disappointed and amazed that (former Colorado) Sen. Hart would try to get back on the ballot. But after giving it some thought I don't think that I would want to support not putting him on the ballot if we think he's a viable candidate," party Chairman Charles A. Whitehead told CBS Radio on Saturday.
