James Grant draws Democratic foe for House seat

Oldsmar Democrat Alexander William McDonald opened a campaign account Wednesday.

House Criminal Justice Chairman James Grant, a Tampa Republican, has drawn a second Democratic challenger as he runs for re-election in 2020.

Oldsmar Democrat Alexander William McDonald opened a campaign account Wednesday to try to unseat Grant in House District 64, which is made up of parts of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, according to the state Division of Elections website.

McDonald joined fellow Democrat Jessica Harrington, who opened an account in December to run for the seat.

Grant had raised $35,350 for his campaign account as of Aug. 31, while Harrington had raised $13,964, finance reports show.

    Grant is a terrible representative. He is all for gun control and taking away local control of almost everything, including short term rentals. He needs to be replaced.

    I wish Grant would just come out and the gay republican community would be so happy!

    I met Grant at a log cabin group about a year ago and he sucked my cock so hard my ears are still ringing!!!!

    Good lord Grant knows how to use that mouth.

    Grant spoke on behalf of the short-term rental industry. How can anyone elect someone who wants to destroy neighborhoods? He even wants to remove any controls in HOAs. He is very dangerous.
