Two of the hottest Congressional races in the country are in Florida’s District 8 and 24, where Congressman Alan Grayson and Congresswoman Suzanne Kosman hold court. Congressman Grayson, a well-known kook, made a name for himself last October when he said that Republicans want sick people to “die quickly” and compared the current health care system to the Holocaust.
There is very good news to report in District 8, as there are a slew of candidates that have qualified to compete against each other for the Republican nomination. Currently, there are (7) Republican candidates in the District 8 primary race that include a couple of current and ex-state legislatures, a Tea Party mom, and a some local businessmen. In District 24, there are another 5 candidates facing off in the Republican Primary. These races seem to be toss-ups with no clear front runners.
This Thursday, The Shark Tank will be traveling to Orlando to sit down with several of these GOP candidates to talk about their races and what they think their chances of beating Grayson and Kosmas are.
