Matt Hudson who raised enough to extend his lead in the three-way Republican Senate District 23 race.

District 29 looks set as well, with Democratic Rep. Jim Waldman having a clear path to take over for outgoing Sen. Jeremy […]

Matt Hudson and Kathleen Passidomo, when the May entry of Naples businessman Gary Price brought on what will likely be an even more contentious three-way primary. Campaign finance numbers for May show Hudson is […]
