Republican U.S. Rep. David Jolly was elected to represent Florida’s 13th Congressional district in a special election in 2014, and was re-elected in November 2014.
This week on Florida Matters (Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 4 at 7:30 a.m.), we feature a newsmaker special with Jolly, who is now campaigning for the Senate seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.
As part of our ongoing coverage of the 2016 elections, we have extended invitations to the other candidates for Rubio’s Senate seat.
The 13th Congressional district covers most of Pinellas County and was held for more than 40 years by Republican C.W. "Bill" Young, who passed away in October 2013.
