Rep. Southerland Kicks Off Campaign Locally

LYNN HAVEN - Congressman Steve Southerland is preparing for what he considers the most competitive election of his career.

Rep. Southerland and his supporters formally kicked off his campaign at the new headquarters off Highway 77 in Lynn Haven. The event gave residents in District 2 the opportunity to voice their concerns.

Congressman Southerland believes the economy and jobs are most important going into this election season. He says this race will be unlike anything he's seen before.

"It's going to have some characteristics to it that are very different than some of our other races. There's going to be a lot of national money pouring into this race race," Rep. Southerland said.

The congressman is running against Gwen Graham who is the daughter of former Florida Governor Bob Graham.
