Florida’s new 6th Congressional district is an open seat, which means that there’s a scramble on in both parties to win the nomination and the general election in the fall.
So far, there are 6 candidates who are getting all the attention (see here for further details), two Democrats and four Republicans. While it’s still early in the election cycle, we’re already seeing some interesting signs of activity (both tweets from the candidate and about the candidate) on Twitter:
Democrat Heather Beaven, who ran unsuccessfully against John Mica (R) in 2010, is dominating Twitter at this early point in the race — for both Democrats and Republicans. It will be interesting to see if activity picks up.
Disclaimer: Since I live in this district, it’s more interesting to me than most other congressional races…
