Audrey Gibson draws 2018 general election opponent

Lucretia Fordyce

Restive SD 6 voters will have a chance to vote for someone other than Sen. Audrey Gibson in 2018, as a write-in has filed.

As LobbyTools first noted, write-in candidate Lucretia Fordyce has filed to run against the veteran Democratic Senator and chair of the Duval County Democratic Party.

If Gibson survives the 2018 primary, she can look forward to a spirited general election campaign against this political newcomer.

Fordyce, a customer service rep and an Army veteran, bills herself on her Facebook page as a “national recording artist and an author.”

Among her books: Dare to Be a Diva in Bella Mafias.

Fordyce describes this book — all nine pages of it — as follows: “Yeah! Yo! I am the devastater. For the Heps to the Shucks, Mafiyo Heck . . . At Apollo at the Florida Theatre, in Jacksonville, Florida. I danced to Freak Me and Hump with It by 95 South mixed tape. We made Triple Threat (my group). I am my music.”

Fordyce also offers, via Facebook, what apparently are musical stylings, which we include below.
