Modern Whig Party targeting Florida democratic districts…

Modern Whig Party targeting Florida democratic districts with two new candidates. The Florida Whig Party, a branch of the Modern Whig Party has announced on Monday, October 19th, 2009, they will officially announce two new 2010 candidates for Congress.

The candidates will be in Florida's 3rd and 20th Congressional Districts.

The 3rd Congressional District covers parts of North Central Florida. Representative Corrine Brown has won the seat uncontested since 2006, in 2004 Congresswoman Brown won with 99% of the vote. She was last seriously challenged in 2002 when she won a three-way race, 59-41-0. She was first elected to Congress in 1992.

The 20th Congressional District covers parts of South Florida including Fort Lauderdale. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has represented the district since winning the 2004 election. That 2004 race was he closest when she won with 70% of the vote.

The Modern Whigs previously announced a candidate for Florida’s 2nd Congressional District. Paul C. McKain is trying to unseat Democratic Congressman Allen Boyd who was first elected in 1996.



  1. The three candidates are making headway the old fashion way. I called and spoke with the chairman of the party and he explained the history of the Florida Party, the national party, and how many candidates they are planning on running. This group appears highly organized.

  2. I guess that headline is out the window. They just announced two new candidates for congress. One in the 25th and one in the 7th district. Both held by republicans. and from my understanding the guy running in the 25th was running as a Democrat and has now left the party to run as a Whig.

  3. Having гeаd this I thought it was
    really enlightening. Ι аppгeciate уou tаking the time and effοrt to put this shoгt article together.
    Ι оnсe again find mуself personallу spending a lot of time
    both reading and commenting. But ѕo what, it waѕ still
    worth it!
