Like so many Floridians, I am relieved to know Representative Heller will not run for the Florida Senate and will continue to serve in his current capacity.
So today, it is with mixed emotions that I announce my withdrawal from the race to succeed Bill Heller in the Florida House.
Although my (fictional) campaign ends today, it has been a pleasure to travel around the district and introduce myself as a potential candidate to so many wonderful people.
I want to first thank my friends and family for supporting me and encouraging me to run.
I’m excited about the future, and I will be working hard to make sure that people of principle who share our commitment to service are elected and re-elected. I’m confident that in years to come, our state will have new leadership and a new direction, which will bode well for fresh, new ideas — and ultimately, handing our children a better state than the one we inherited.
(Lol – h/t to an old friend who actually just wrote this letter in her district.)
