TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida State Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, announced Monday she will join the crowded race to represent Congressional District 15.
“I know what is possible when consistent conservatives fight for our shared values. In Tallahassee, I have fought alongside Governor Ron DeSantis to prioritize Florida’s families, fight for parental choice and ensure our state remains a beacon of freedom for the rest of the world,” Stargel said.
Stargel was the senate sponsor for the new Florida law that bans abortions after 15 weeks.
“It’s easy to say you’ll fight for the unborn, work to expand school choice, or demand accountability for our small business owners, but I’m the only candidate in this race who has actually delivered on these critical issues,” Stargel said.
Stargel’s announcement included her support to keep the state’s economy open during the pandemic, her fight against masking children and vaccine mandates, and her legislation to keep biological males out of women’s sports. Stargel launched her campaign website https://www.votestargel.com/.
Rep. Jackie Toledo, former U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, Jay Collins, Jerry Torres, Demetries Grimes and Kevin John McGovern have announced they will run for the seat.
