There will not be an open seat in Jacksonville’s U.S. Congressional Delegation in 2018, confounding those who expected otherwise. U.S. Rep. John Rutherford confirmed to Florida Politics Monday evening that he does, in fact, plan to run for re-election in Florida’s 4th Congressional District — a Jacksonville-centered district that includes Nassau and northern St. Johns County. “It […]

Northeast Florida will have a completely new Congressional delegation in January, as the Associated Press has called the races in its two districts, and both were won by candidates looking to bridge the partisan divide. As widely expected, Republican John Rutherford downed Democrat David Bruderly in the 4th Congressional District: 280,319 to 110,257 (70 percent to 28 percent) […]

Election Night brings the opportunity for celebration for at least one candidate in every race. Northeast Florida candidates are no exception, with parties planned. Congressional District 4 Republican candidate John Rutherford will return to the place where he celebrated his primary victory in August: the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront. While the scene won’t be as chaotic […]

There were no winners in Wednesday’s debate involving candidates in Florida’s 4th Congressional District. For one thing, Republican John Rutherford passed on the event. It was a wise move. He would have gained little from the experience, and would have exposed himself to downside risk. Democrat Dave Bruderly debated write-in/independent candidates Danny Murphy and Gary Koniz Wednesday evening in Jacksonville. The […]

While Republican candidate and former Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford will not be present, Congressional District 4 candidates will debate on Wednesday nonetheless. The CD 4 debate will be held at Florida State College at Jacksonville’s North Campus, in the Zeke Bryant Auditorium, between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. While not televised, it will stream via live.fscj.edu. The candidates […]

A quartet of Democratic congressional candidates from north Florida — all veterans themselves — on Thursday “endorsed a platform of policies that will improve the lives of veterans and their families,” according to a press release. Steven Specht (1st Congressional District) is an Air Force veteran who served in Afghanistan. Walt Dartland (2nd Congressional District) is a former Marine […]

Don’t look for a TV ad blitz down the stretch from the Democrat in the contested race in Florida’s 4th Congressional District. Dave Bruderly filed his October quarterly report, and the numbers underwhelmed. Bruderly carried $15,016 into the campaign’s homestretch; essentially half of the $31,742 Republican John Rutherford had on hand in his October report. Bruderly […]

Dave Bruderly, the Democratic candidate in Northeast Florida’s 4th Congressional District, was endorsed by the AFL-CIO on Friday. The letter from Florida AFL-CIO President Mike Williams to Bruderly asserted that “[w]ith over 500,000 AFL-CIO members in the state of Florida, our endorsement can make a great difference in your election campaign.” Bruderly is running against the well-known GOP […]
