Pinellas congressional candidates can file this week
Federal candidates can file for office Monday through Friday this week, which means it should soon become clear how much opposition newly elected U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Indian Shores, will face in Pinellas County's Congressional District 13. Democrat Manuel Sykes has said he intends to run. The primary election will be Aug. 26 and the general election will be Nov. 4. Here is a look at the voter regisration in the district, which extens from south Pinellas to Dunedin, with portions of southern and downtown St. Petersburg cut out.
