Yesterday, state Sen. Randolph Bracy (D-Orlando) said he will challenge Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) next year unless US Rep. Val Demings (D-Orlando) decides to run. If she does, Sen. Bracy continued, he would enter the open seat race for her congressional district. Both state Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D) and US Representative and former Governor Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) are testing the waters for their own gubernatorial campaign. Gov. DeSantis is expected to seek a second term.
