Dicks' campaign one to watch, says DCCC



Democrat John Dicks, one of three Democrats vying to challenge incumbent U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, in the District 9 Congressional race, boasted Wednesday his campaign has been named one of the top 20 emerging races in the country by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Dicks, former mayor of Plant City, face Anita dePalma and Bill Mitchell in the Democratic primary in August.
