TAMPA BAY – 15 months ago David Jolly took the GOP by storm and was elected to Congressional District 13 by beating well known Democratic Alex Sink. Rep. Jolly was able to run a successful campaign by using the narrative that he is a Pinellas home grown product with his friends and relatives from that area.
Monday, Rep. Jolly has announced his run for the US Senate. Congressman Jolly discusses his decision about leaving the House to pursue the Senate.
He has done a great job in the House and the Supreme Court has made the decision to re-draw his district transforming it overnight into a Democratic stronghold. He is making the logical, egoless decision.
