Rep. Jamie Grant’s Republican challenger in the House District 64 primary has filed a lawsuit demanding Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner remove Grant as a candidate, saying he has violated the state’s term limits. “I believe that Rep.

Hollywood Sen. Eleanor Sobel has introduced what she says is a legislative fix for a perennial bugaboo in state elections — complications extending from minor write-in candidates who rarely gain a significant share of the vote, but who often cause procedural headaches for candidates and sometimes cost the taxpayers  to finance low-stakes special elections. Sobel’s bill, SB […]
