House District 12 candidates debate Tuesday


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – All five candidates for Florida House District 12 will debate Tuesday evening.

Former Jacksonville City Council members Don Redman and Clay Yarborough along with Terrance Freeman, Stan Jordan and Mark MacLean will debate at the University of North Florida's Adam Herbert Center on Alumni Drive.

The event, sponsored by the Greater Arlington Republican Club, the River City Republican Club and the Republican Women's Club of Duval Federated begins at 7 p.m.

There is no Democrat or independent in the race, so the winner of the August Republican primary will face only a write-in candidate in November.

District 12, which covers much of Jacksonville's Southside, was held by Lake Ray, who has reached his term limit in the Florida House, is running for Congress.
