Alan Grayson files to run again but says its just paperwork, for now

Source: Florida Politics

Democrat U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson is downplaying prospects that his filing to run again for Congress means he’s going to run again for Congress — but he’s not ruling it out.

The Democrat from Orlando — who leaves office Jan. 3 because he did not seek re-election in Florida’s 9th Congressional District — has filed paperwork to run in 2018. And this time he filed to run in Florida’s 11th Congressional District, centered in Lake County.

Yet Grayson insisted Tuesday that the paperwork is simply a legal requirement because his campaign committee continued to raise money since the Nov. 8 election.

Federal law requires a candidate to actually be running for something if his campaign is raising money.

1. Oh my gosh. That's my district.

 

Wow. Our results for democratic seats in all races were dismal. I was so disappointed when I saw the results.

2. f8ck

I gave to his campaign MANY years ago and he keeps recycling the same lists. I blocked 7 different Florida numbers from his campaign this last one. I'm in NJ and I'm never giving to him again. Even when you request to be removed - they keep calling you.

4. I've never given him money

And I still get regular emails begging for donations - and i'm in California.

There doesn't appear to be any obvious way to get off his mailing list either.

10. Go Grayson!

We need someone in Congress who will stand up to Trump and tell it to his face.
