A special election is taking place in southwest Florida Tuesday, with four Republicans facing off for the chance to replace Rep. Trey Radel (R-Fla.).

Radel resigned in January after being arrested for cocaine possession in October 2013.

The four candidates vying to replace Radel are Florida state Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, former CEO Curt Clawson, aerospace and defense consultant Michael Dreikorn and physician Paige Kreegel.
