House Democrats’ Dramatic Primary Problems Continue

House Democrats can now add FL-13 to their list of crowded primaries across the country.

Yesterday, Tampa City Councilman Mary Mulhern announced that she would soon be filing to run for the FL-13 Congressional District seat. St. Petersburg City Councilwoman Darden Rice is also considering jumping into the race and said she was “blindsided” to hear that Mulhern was going to run. And let’s not
forget that Democrat Eric Lynn has already thrown his hat into the ring. Drama.

Florida Democrats failed to take down David Jolly in the 2014 special election and failed to even field a candidate in the 2014 general election. With their history of losing this seat and the current intra-party fighting, things are not looking promising for Democrats.
