Corrine Brown won't run in Webster's district



Despite speculation Corrine Brown would move toward Orlando to run in a revamped Congressional District 10, the Jacksonville Democrat has filed to run in her district, which is also getting redrawn.

"She plans to run in the current district, district 5," spokesman David Simon said in an email. "I'm sure you know, she does not think the district will change and has filed a federal suit to keep district five's boundaries as they are."

News reports suggested Brown would move to District 10, currently held by Rep. Dan Webster. But Simon said that was talk from someone who does not work for the congresswoman.

The redrawn District 5 runs from Jacksonville through Tallahassee and into Gadsden County. Several potential rivals have talked about running, including Al Lawson and Andrew Gillum.
