Dave Bruderly to run as sole Democrat in CD 4 race

Jacksonville Democrats will have an option on the ballot in Florida’s 4th Congressional District.

Democrat David Bruderly was a late qualifier for the ballot Friday, the sole Democrat in the race.

Bruderly is something of a perennial candidate, having run and lost House races in safe Republican districts before.

He ran and lost to Cliff Stearns in CD 6 in 2004 and 2006, at that point a resident of the Gainesville area.

Since 2006, the environmental engineer has moved to Jacksonville.

In November, Bruderly will face one of a crowded field of Republican hopefuls, who look to succeed retiring Rep. Ander Crenshaw.
