US Rep. Connie Mack announces he will, in fact, run for the US Senate.
This creates an open congressional seat, for which many candidates are expected to compete, including Rep. Gary Aubuchon, who last week filed to run for Mack’s seat.
The dominoes continue to fall today as prospective candidates line up to run for Rep. Aubuchon’s seat, which covers parts of Charlotte and Lee counties.
One of those candidates is political rising star Dane Eagle, who is announcing today he is running for Aubuchon’s seat.
Eagles is a Realtor who was born and raised in Cape Coral. After obtaining his Bachelors Degree in Economics from the University of Florida in 2005, Dane moved to Tallahassee to work in politics and government.
