Fasano to run for Pasco House seat

Apr 3, 2012

Senator Mike Fasano is announcing plans for run for the Florida House. Regan McCarthy reports Fasano is eyeing a Pasco County seat.

After serving in the Florida Senate for 10 years, Senator Mike Fasano, a Republican from New Port Richey, says he wants to return to the Florida House. Fasano served as a representative previously from 1994 to 2002. He says he’s looking forward to getting back to his roots.

“The Florida House of Representatives is probably, along with the Senate, as close to the people back in our districts as any other elected official if not more.”

The state’s term limit laws keep Fasano from making another run in the Senate. And he had considered seeking a congressional seat, but the state’s new voting district lines changed his plans.
