Congressman Ron DeSantis’ (pictured) move to run for governor of Florida and not for re-election to the U.S. Congress, is making for a very interested Republican primary race in his congressional district.

St. John’s County Commissioner Jimmy Johns (not that Jimmy John) has just announced that he will seek the Republican nomination in Florida’s 6th congressional district. In a statement to the press, John’s stated that he would support President Trump’s entire agenda for America, including pushing for tax cuts, and end “burdensome regulations.”

John’s joins businessman and Navy Veteran John Ward and Michael Waltz as the top candidates in that race. The winner of the GOP primary race in this congressional district is all-but guaranteed a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
