Dena Grayson, wife of former Congressman and ex-US Senate candidate Alan Grayson (D-Orlando), is launching her second run for the US House. In 2016, she lost the Democratic primary for her husband’s former 9th District when he was running statewide.
Yesterday, Ms. Grayson announced that she will challenge Rep. Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) in the adjacent 8th CD, a much more Republican district (Trump ’16: 58-38%), instead of again going after Democratic Rep. Darren Soto (D-Kissimmee) in the more Democratic 9th District. Rep. Posey will be heavily favored for re-election.
