District 12 - Incumbent Gus Bilirakis (R)
Chris Hunter – American service is an enduring promise that crosses generations, connects us to one another, and inspires hope. Then we serve our country and one another, we put our shared American values into action.
Stephen Perenich – I am the non-politician candidate, running to reset the relationship between the American people and our government. I will not accept special interest money and I will not sling mud against my opponents. But I will absolutely and relentlessly fight for the working women and men of our district so that we can leave this world better than we found it: for ourselves, for our children, and for our grandchildren. I invite you to join me in this Revolution by Democracy.
Angelika Purkis (Independent) - Started working in my neighborhood. Quickly realized that this very same work needs to be done all around our counties, all over the state, and almost everywhere in the nation. Our government, at all levels has been building us into pantomime boxes that appear to have no way out. Many have lost hope. Lets ask WHY? Then get out of the box together and get it done, because ....
ITS NOT OKAY!
Robert Tager - I know the pains of unemployment, low wages, high student loan debt, preexisting medical condition, and struggling to just make ends meet. I fear the future for my family and yours if forward thinking, "Progressive" ideals are not implemented.
Kimberly Walker - Why am I running? I am committed because I love and am invested in my fellow Americans. I desire what is best for all of us. What does that mean? I believe healthcare is a right not a privilege. I want to ensure our public schools are better funded and our teachers get the pay they deserve. Like most Americans I object to politicians putting party and special interest groups over what is best for the country. More importantly, as a solider I swore to support and defend the constitution and the people of the United States of America. As a Congresswomen I would uphold these values.

Raymond Pena Jr. I believe in the principle of reciprocity as an attribute of a true leader. My Puerto Rican father and Cuban mother taught me from an early age to give back to my community and country.
James Gregory Pilkington - I want to be your Congressman because I know that I can negotiate on the behalf of the people of the 15th District to ensure that our economic and community needs are met. In the past, our representatives have failed to do this.
