Preston Oughton, a Jacksonville Democrat, filed to run in the HD 16 race earlier this month.
Oughton is an attorney and a graduate of the local Florida Coastal School of Law.
Oughton will face the winner of the primary between School Board member Jason Fischer and Dick Kravitz, a former State Legislator who now works in a greeter/customer service role at the Duval County Supervisor of Elections even while he runs an active campaign, a position Kravitz secured after endorsing the Supervisor of Elections in last year’s election.
No matter whether Kravitz or Fischer emerges, Oughton faces an uphill battle in terms of fundraising.
Kravitz, who raised $2,600 in February, has roughly $67,000 on hand.
Fischer has almost $127,000 cash on hand, after an $8,600 February. Additionally, his PAC has raised roughly $70,000.
