WHAT’S AT STAKE
- Florida Democrats currently hold 41 seats, so they’ll need to gain 20 seats to have a majority in the chamber. That won’t happen.
- Ingoglia, who casts himself as a businessman rather than a “career politician,” has said he’ll prioritize policies that help attract manufacturers to Hernando County and satisfy the ones already here — including expansion of vocational training and education. He also wants to keep home prices and the cost-of-living low in the county.
- Kasperek has said her top priorities would be criminal justice reform that includes decriminalization of minor offenses, attracting high-paying companies and strengthening environmental regulations while expanding solar energy production.
