Open House seats in Jacksonville and South Florida continued to draw candidates this week.

Jacksonville Democrat Matthew McAllister became the third candidate to open a campaign account to run in 2018 in House District 15.

Rep. Jay Fant, R-Jacksonville, is running for attorney general instead of seeking another term in the Duval County district.

Meanwhile, Delray Beach Republican Michael Caruso opened a campaign account to become the fourth candidate running in Palm Beach County's House District 89.

Rep. Bill Hager, R-Delray Beach, cannot run for re-election next year because of term limits.

In Miami-Dade County, Republican Juan Alfonso Fernandez-Barquin opened an account to become the fourth candidate in House District 119.

Rep. Jeanette Nunez, R-Miami, is barred by term limits from running for re-election in the district.
