Democratic lawyer and entrepreneur Ashley Gantt is running to represent Miami’s House District 109 and her fundraising for the past three months outpaced the incumbent she hopes to unseat – one of the longest-serving incumbents in the House.
Democratic Rep. James Bush III was first elected Representative in 1992, and has been elected for two more stints. He’s currently seeking a third consecutive term, but progressive Democrats want him gone.
Bush cast the lone Democratic vote for the 15-week ban on abortion and also voted for the Parental Rights in Education law that regulates gender identity and sexual orientation school discussions.
