State House | District 69
Republican incumbent Kathleen Peters touts her ability to get things done in Tallahassee, most recently by announcing she will sponsor legislation to more tightly regulate Duke Energy's business practices. Political newcomer Scott Orsini says the swing district will not be swayed by Peters' recent conversion on Duke. He says he will fight for small businesses and families. Both candidates say they will work for commonsense solutions in the Legislature. By Charlie Frago, Times staff writer
