Alan Cohn will once again lead Democratic efforts to take a Central Florida congressional seat.
The veteran news anchor won the Democratic nomination in Florida’s 15th Congressional District, besting political consultant Gavin Brown and video producer Eddie Geller.
Cohn led in all three counties in the district, collecting about 33% of the vote, to Brown’s 22%, and Geller’s 22%.
Cohn, who has run twice prior in different configurations of an east Hillsborough seat, jumped back into the running this year. Now, he’ll face Thonotosassa Republican Laurel Lee in the November General Election in what’s expected to be a competitive race.
