Jacksonville lawmaker denied third term in Florida House
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. While two Northeast Florida state House members easily won primary challenges Tuesday, Rep. Kimberly Daniels lost handily to community organizer Angie Nixon. Daniels had sometimes split from other Democrats by supporting issues such as abortion restrictions and school vouchers and represents the solidly blue Northeast Jacksonville state House District 14. Nixon, who earned 59% of the vote, will face only a write-in opponent in November. In District 12, Incumbent Rep. Clay Yarborough easily dispatched Republican challenger Colin McArthur his primary race. Rob Bradley of Fleming Island, defeated Jason Holifield in Florida Senate District 5, which includes Clay, Baker, Union, Columbia and other counties stretching to the Gulf of Mexico.
Florida state House District 14
Angie Nixon challenged incumbent lawmaker Kimberly Daniels in the Democratic primary in this district that covers a wide swath of northern and western Duval County and Northwest Jacksonville. The current state rep. has moved the district office location out of the district into city hall. I will have an open door policy and create a District 14 advisory committee to help guide the district priorities. I would host bi-monthly community conversations throughout the district, so that we can begin to talk and understand each other. I would also continue to push for comprehensive criminal justice reform and major investment into the district in the form of economic development.
