    If Hill wins? Tea Party versus Labor leader in General Election. One candidate supporting far right agenda. The other who actually represents Union members who are moderate Republicans out at NAS Pensacola. The Democratic candidate Jeremy Lau is clearly for working families in the district.

    If Gray wins? The life long politican versus new ideas and a candidate who wants to serve the people for their benefit – working families.

    I think his lead has more to do with people being fed up with business as usual candidates and politicians. Look to see this play out in many future elections.

    Mr. Hill does not live in the district, that is not a distortion of the truth.

    How do the Florida Legislature’s carpetbagger rules work? If Hill wins the primary and then special election, will he have to sell his Marcus Pointe home and move himself and his family from District 1 to District 2 or can he continue to live in District 1 commuting to his local legislative office each day that presumably must be somewhere in District 2.
