First-term Democratic Rep. Andrew Learned is in for a tough race against challenger Danny Alvarez, as the pair compete for the new House District 69.
The new district closely resembles that of former House District 57, represented by Republican Rep. Mike Beltran, who opted to relocate to run for HD 70 instead.
That left Alvarez to fight against another incumbent in Learned, who represents House District 59 – which was, before redistricting, a light blue sliver encompassing Brandon.
Now, Learned is fighting to retain his spot in the Legislature in a district including East Hillsborough County, which has a light red hue.
