Broward’s newly elected Democratic state representative, Daryl Campbell, will be prevented from taking office during the current legislative session. The Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee won’t send a letter to the Florida House of Representatives declaring Campbell as the winner until at least March 8.

"The annual 60-day legislative session, which began Jan. 11 — coincidentally the same day as the special primary — ends on March 11. If the letter from Lee goes to the Florida House immediately, Campbell would at best be able to cast votes only during the last few days of 2022 lawmaking."
