“A member of the Bilirakis family has represented Florida’s 12th Congressional District since 1982, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is not targeting it as a seat that could flip this fall. But that isn’t deterring” former federal prosecutor Chris Hunter (D). “A Hershey, Pennsylvania native who moved to Florida a decade ago, Hunter resigned from his position as a senior prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice in December to pursue a run for political office. … A former FBI agent, Hunter says he has plenty to say about highly controversial Republican memo alleging the FBI abused its surveillance tools. … Hunter penned an op-ed on the issue which ran Tuesday in the Tampa Bay Times.” (Florida Politics)
He’ll face Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R) if he wins the primary, but the district leans heavily Republican.
