A political novice from Brandon is taking on a former Plant City mayor to fill this newly created district. The choices: Jose N. Vazquez, a Democrat and political newcomer who vowed to quit the race after a dispute with Democratic leaders. So far, he hasn't followed through with that threat. He ran as a write-in candidate four years ago despite being incarcerated for a felony conviction. His opponent is Daniel D. Raulerson, a Republican Plant City commissioner and former mayor.
