Legislative IQ

The Florida Senate filed the budget bills Friday to be taken up in special session.

Rep. Richard Corcoran has drawn a Republican challenger for the 2016 election cycle. It does not appear to be related to the fight over health care.

Democrat Patrick Jabouin Sr. has filed to replace term-limited Rep. Hazelle Rogers in House District 95

Democrat Augustine "Gus" Martinez has filed for House District 49 in Orlando. He is not challenging Rep. Neil Combee in House District 39 despite earlier news reports.

Rep. Ron Reagan is considering a return to politics if Rep. Greg Steube leaves his House seat to run for the Senate spot currently held by Sen. Nancy Detert, who is considering her own run for a Sarasota county commission seat. If he runs, he may face a primary challenge from Sarasota Republican Party chair Joe Gruters.

Sen. Wilton Simpson, the likely Senate president for the 2021-22 legislative session, has filed to run for re-election.

Brevard County Commissioner Andy Anderson will drop out of the race to replace Rep. John Tobia, R-Melbourne, in House District 53 and will instead join the city of Palm Bay as an economic development administrator.
