Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and Democratic Congressman Patrick Murphy are campaigning as if Tuesday’s primary was already over and they won their parties’ nominations for U.S. Senate. And it may be for good reason. Rubio’s main challenger, Carlos Beruff, appeared to throw in the towel, essentially shutting down the campaign he’d sunk $8 million of […]

In an “exit interview” Friday in The Hill, outgoing congressman Ander Crenshaw reflected on his 15 years in Congress. Among the most vivid memories: flying to Florida with President George W.

On Friday evening, at his new Congressional campaign headquarters, former Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford was beaming with happiness. His friends and family were on hand, and the small room, full of people there to pick up yard signs and wish him well, felt more like a house party than the opening of a campaign office. […]

Both Jacksonville U.S. Representatives addressed the massacre of 50 people in the Orlando nightclub Pulse on Sunday afternoon, though they messaged differently. Rep. Corrine Brown, running for re-election in a radically reconfigured 5th Congressional District of Florida, was very explicit Sunday afternoon in condemning the massacre of 50 people in the Orlando nightclub Pulse as an attack […]
