Cris Dosev has filed to run against Congressman Matt Gaetz in 2018. Last year, Dosev placed third behind Gaetz and State Sen. Greg Evers in the GOP primary:

Greg Evers 21.8% 21,540
Cris Dosev 20.9% 20,610
Another four candidates split the rest of the vote.
During the Republican Congressional debates, Dosev provided several fireworks as he challenged the frontrunner Gaetz:
From July 30 debate at Milton High School:
Dosev said to Gaetz: “…when you talk about killing Muslim terrorists let me tell you what, you’re not going to be killing any Muslim terrorists. I’ve already talked to you about this. My son with 3rd battalion 6th Marines. He may be killing Muslim terrorists, but let me tell you, when folks talk about these things and the way you’ve discussed it both on your ads and in the paper are irresponsible and juvenile. We’re not playing ‘Call of Duty’ here. This is serious business and people that have been in this business understand it to be so.”
