Former Rep. Sandy Adams (R) said she is “ex­plor­ing the idea” of run­ning for Rep. Ron De­S­antis’s (R) House seat. Adams un­seated Rep. Su­z­anne Kos­mas (D) in 2010 but was re­dis­tric­ted in­to the same dis­trict as an­oth­er in­cum­bent, Rep. John Mica (R-07), who beat her in the 2012 primary.

“If she runs for De­S­antis’ seat, Adams will have to in­tro­duce her­self to many voters in North­east Flor­ida who are not fa­mil­i­ar with her. Based out of Cent­ral Flor­ida dur­ing her time in the Flor­ida House, Adams rep­res­en­ted parts of Volusia County and oth­er parts of the re­gion dur­ing her term in Con­gress.” (Sun­shine State News)

The seat is open now that De­s­antis is run­ning for Sen­ate.

Re­pub­lic­an op­er­at­ives named sev­er­al oth­er pos­sible can­did­ates: state Sen. Fred Cos­tello (R), state Sen. Dorothy Hukill (R), state Sen. Trav­is Hut­son (R), and state Rep. Doc Ren­u­art (R). Cos­tello lost the Re­pub­lic­an primary to De­S­antis in 2012. (Roll Call)
