By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Oct. 7, 2015 – In what promises to be one of the most expensive Democratic campaigns in Florida next year, an open state Senate seat now has a second well-healed candidate.
Parkland millionaire Gary Farmer quietly filed for west Broward’s state Senate District 29 this week. For the past two years Jim Waldman, a millionaire former state House member who lives in Coconut Creek, had the field to himself.
Both are lawyers. Both are Democrats running in the 2016 election for an overwhelmingly Democratic district which currently stretches from Deerfield Beach, Coconut Creek and Margate south along both sides of the Sawgrass Expressway ending in Southwest Ranches.
