Hukill to run against Kosmas in FL-24
Well it looks like yet another Republican is lining up to challenge one of our Democratic women in 2010.
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that another GOP candidate has thrown her hat into the ring to challenge Rep. Suzanne Kosmas (FL-24), state Rep. Dorothy Hukill. Ever since Kosmas won in 2008, Republicans have been eyeing her seat.
From the Sentinel:
"The field of Republicans vying to take on Democratic U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas of New Smyrna Beach has grown to four.
State Rep. Dorothy Hukill, R-Port Orange, said Monday she's filing paperwork to make a run for Kosmas's seat in 2010. She's joining fellow state Rep. Sandy Adams, R-Orlando, who has said she is virtually certain to run, Winter Park Commissioner Karen Diebel and Kenneth John Miller, both of whom have already filed paperwork to run."
Kosmas sailed to victory over entrenched incumbent former Rep. Tom Feeney in 2008, but there's no doubt Republicans are gearing up for a tough fight next year.
