Republican Rep. Chip LaMarca of Lighthouse Point has decided not to pursue the congressional seat that Rep. Ted Deutch of Boca Raton is vacating.
LaMarca, will instead go for a third term as a state Representative. He was one of a number of names floated as a successor to represent the district that straddles Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Broward County Commissioner Jared Moskowitz first jumped into a bid for the Democratic nomination for the seat, followed by Fort Lauderdale Vice Mayor Ben Sorensen and political newcomer Curtis Calabrese.
