The race for Florida’s 13th Congressional District could soon draw another Democrat. St. Petersburg Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin is mulling a run.
“Serving our wonderful city as Deputy Mayor and City Administrator alongside Mayor Rick Kriseman has been one of the highest honors of my life. As our time of shared service nears its end, I’m contemplating my next chapter,” she tweeted.
Tomalin’s decision is by no means final, but it could shake up the Democratic Primary to replace U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist. Already running are Reps. Ben Diamond and Michele Rayner, and former Obama administration staffer Eric Lynn.
