Amanda Murphy has received enough signatures to secure a spot on the ballot.
Murphy announced Friday she received enough verified signatures to qualify in House District 36. The New Port Richey Democrat is currently running unopposed for re-election.
“I am honored to have the faith and support of my community,” she said in a statement. “Their support in helping me get qualified was invaluable and I couldn’t have done it without all my great volunteers. I am excited to start working towards the general election so we can continue tackling the issues that are important to West Pasco.”
Murphy was first elected during a special election in 2013 to replace Mike Fasano in the Florida House.
State records show she received 964 verified signatures. She needed 963 to qualify by petition.
