Polk Commissioner Randy Wilkinson joins District 12 congressional race

BRANDON - Polk County Commissioner Randy Wilkinson just announced plans to challenge former state Rep. Dennis Ross for the Republican nomination in the District 12 congresssional race.

Though he has yet to formerly file, Wilkinson announced his plans to a small group in Brandon, saying that fixing the economy would be his No. 1 priority.

The Democrats running for U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam's seat are Polk County Supervisor of Elections Lori Edwards and Navy veteran Doug Tudor, who ran against Putnam last year.
