Florida Vote Medical Marijuana Florida Congressional Scorecard

Three members of the House of Representatives from Florida are not seeking re-election. Reps. Illeana Ros-Lehtinen (R-27th), Tom Rooney (R-17th), and Dennis Ross (R-15th) are all retiring. Governor Rick Scott (R) is challenging Senator Bill Nelson in a tight race for the Senate.

Race to Watch - Florida Agriculture Commissioner

While it may not seem like a position of significance, the race has gotten national attention because candidate Nikki Fried (D) had her Wells Fargo bank account closed due to her ties to the medical cannabis industry. Part of her campaign platform includes expanding Florida’s medical cannabis program, and before entering politics, she ran a lobbying firm that sought to expand access to medical cannabis. You can read more about her platform and campaign here.
