in Uncategorized by

Four freshman House Democrats from South Florida have filed paperwork to seek re-election in 2014, according to the state Division of Elections website.

They are Reps. Bobby Powell in District 88; Katie Edwards in District 98, Richard Stark in District 104; and David Richardson in District 113.

Edwards and Stark easily beat Republicans in the November general elections, while Powell and Richardson won their seats in Democratic primaries.

Filing the paperwork, at least in part, allows candidates to start raising money.
