District  7  - Incumbent Stephanie Murphy  (D)

Chardo Richardson - When it comes to serving people, Chardo is ready to do whatever it takes as Florida's District 7 Congressional Representative. There is nothing he won't do to advance the objectives of those that are disadvantaged, persecuted, under paid, unrepresented, or unheard. In order to right our ship, Chardo is focused on the one thing that he knows for sure works in resolving conflict, hatred, division, and distrust; he will be the opposite of it. “If we change us, we can change the world.”​

Stephanie Murphy - U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy proudly represents central Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is a former educator, businesswoman, and national security specialist.

District 9 ·   Incumbent   Darren Soto (D)

Darren Soto – While serving in the Florida Legislature for the past eight years, Darren worked to bring high-paying, high tech jobs to Central Florida; protect our clean air, land, and water; expand and protect health care; help families facing foreclosure; and improve education.

Wayne Liebnitzky

Dana Cottrell   - It has always been her dream to help others and make the world a better place for all. She has worked toward this goal through her teaching career, and now, she hopes to continue by serving the constituents of District 11.

Daniel Webster (REP)- Incumbent

Luis Saldana (WRI)

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 (NPA) - 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 ....


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.


Gus M. Bilirakis - Incumbent

District 15  Incumbent - Dennis Ross  (R)

Kristin Carlson - I’ve spent my life working to solve problems like these, but it seems like no one in Washington is focused on results. Too many members of Congress are putting partisan politics ahead of what’s best for our country. And our President is making it worse by using fear and hatred to divide us.

Andrew Learned:  Andrew is a local small-business owner and a veteran Naval Officer of 8-years and three Middle East deployments. He’s an Ironman athlete, fan of all things Tampa sports, and now he's running for Congress.

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.
