The seat will resemble current House District 60 represented by Tampa Republican Jackie Toledo.
Tampa Bay local business owner Jen McDonald launched her campaign Tuesday for the newly drawn state House District 65.
McDonald, a Democrat, is hoping to take the competitive Hillsborough County seat, which closely resembles current House District 60 represented by Tampa Republican Rep. Jackie Toledo.
“I’m excited to announce my candidacy for House District 65. After decades working alongside many of you on behalf of our community, I know the unique challenges and opportunities we face,” McDonald said in a statement. “As an entrepreneur who founded and built my business right here in Tampa Bay, I’m all too aware of our need for a Representative in Tallahassee who will deliver for our community. I will bring bold leadership and a fresh perspective to service on behalf of all District 65 residents.”
