In politics, money counts for a lot. And fundraising numbers are usually a signal of how much support a candidate has. The Leon-Gadsden races for House Districts eight and nine, are wide open this year. Both incumbents, state Representatives Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda and Alan Williams, are term limited.

Florida House of Representatives

Former Tallahassee state Rep. Loranne Ausley is looking to get her old job back.  Ausley says she's in the 2016 race to represent House District 9.

A proposal to block the public’s access to state employees’ records could cause one Republican candidate to go against the Governor’s open government policy. But, the challenger in the House District 9 race says he’s just doing what he thinks the people want.
