Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla has filed paperwork indicating he will seek re-election in 2014 in District 40, according to the state Division of Elections website.

Also, Sens. Denise Grimsley, R-Sebring, and Gwen Margolis, D-Miami, have joined a growing list of incumbents already planning for 2016 races. Grimsley filed paperwork in District 21, while Margolis filed in District 35. Filing the paperwork, at least in part, allows candidates to raise money.
