Voters in the St. Petersburg area will be picking a new House member on March 25 to replace Frank Peterson, who resigned to run the state Department of Juvenile Justice.
Peterson is a Democrat, as are the four candidates who have so far launched their campaigns to succeed him. A general election will be held April 15, if anyone from another party bothers to make a go of it.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
