Nuclear engineer may challenge Democrat Lois Frankel


In the 2018 mid-term election cycle, Democratic Congresswoman Lois Frankel (pictured with Speaker Pelosi) barely escaped a general election challenge after the only Republican running in his respective primary race, failed to qualify for the general election.

The 2020 presidential election may turn out to be more of challenge for Frankel, as nuclear engineer Christian Acosta of Boynton Beach has just announced his congressional exploratory campaign this past weekend.

Acosta, a University of Florida alumni, told the Republican Club of the Northern Palm Beaches his intentions to explore a run against Frankel on St. Patrick’s Day.

Will Acosta be that “Lucky Charm” candidate that Republicans in Florida’s 21st congressional district have been looking to defeat Frankel?
