Florida Senate Candidates Staying In Race Despite Redistricting Confusion

Jim Waldman

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Nov. 5, 2015 – No one in Broward County has more at stake at the redistricting going on in Tallahassee than Senate candidates Lauren Book, Gary Farmer and Jim Waldman.

Democratic candidates for currently open Democratic seats have no idea what the future districts will look like and who they will be running against.

Unlike incumbent senators, Farmer and Waldman have little clout in the process.

Ms. Book’s father Ron Book, a well-known lobbyist, is thought by some Broward insiders to be involved behind-the-scenes for his daughter, which he denies.
