David Jolly Claims Victory in Special Primary Election for Florida Congressional District 13
Jolly Thanks Pinellas County Voters for Support of His Campaign
St. Petersburg, Fla. – Pinellas County Republican Candidate David Jolly today claimed victory in the Special Primary Election for Florida Congressional District 13. Following his victory, Jolly thanked Pinellas County voters for their support of his campaign and celebrated his victory at the St. Petersburg Marriott Clearwater in St. Petersburg, Fla.
“I am humbled and encouraged by our victory tonight and I thank you very much for your support in this race for the future of Pinellas County,” said Jolly. “The choice in this race is now between a liberal politician from Hillsborough, backed by Washington, and a Pinellas County Republican who is running for you. While my opponent defends Obamacare, despite the mess of broken promises and the threat it poses to every family and every business, I will work to repeal Obamacare, right away, and replace it with an affordable, private sector solution that actually fulfills this promise: ‘if you like your insurance, you can keep it.’ This is a Pinellas County race and I am in this to win for the people of Pinellas.”
Florida Congressional District 13 was represented by the late Congressman Bill Young, who had served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1971 before passing away on October 18, 2013. The special general election to fill the congressional seat for Florida District 13 will be held on March 11, 2014.
