Coast Guard veteran Chris Chambers has become the fourth Republican to jump into the race for Florida’s 14th Congressional District to potentially challenge Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor.
Chambers, who works on the Tampa Electric Security and Emergency Management Team, said in a statement that he is running to combat “uncontrolled inflation, skyrocketing gas prices and a complete lack of affordable housing.”
“I cannot sit back and watch the lack of leadership in Washington D.C. harm our way of life,” Chambers said.
He faces fellow Republicans Jay Collins, James Judge and Angel Urbina in the Congressional Primary.
