PolitiFact Florida: David Jolly, Kathleen Peters trade barbs in 13th District primary race



Republican candidates David Jolly and Kathleen Peters are trading attacks in mailers being sent to prospective voters ahead of the Jan. 14 primary for the 13th Congressional District nomination. PolitiFact Florida is in primary mode, too, looking into whether a couple of these claims are true.
