Last week, more than 40 candidates from across Florida wrote Gov. Ron DeSantis last week about ballot access.
On Thursday, Jacksonville businessman Gary Adler announced he was running for the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Al Lawson, D-Fla.,
While he represents a fairly secure district for Democrats, Lawson hasn’t had the easiest path to Congress despite having been on the Florida political stage for almost four decades.
The special election was called when Republican Halsey Beshears gave up his seat to serve as Gov. Ron DeSantis’ secretary of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. The district stretches across parts of the Big Bend and North Florida.
While he lost Duval County to former Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, Lawson swept the rest of the district, taking 60 percent of the Democratic primary on Tuesday.
