Republican strategist Amanda Makki is entering the race for Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
Makki announced her candidacy Tuesday in Largo, surrounded by a handful of local politicos. There, Makki called for stricter border security and condemned Democratic election reform.
This won’t be her first time in the ring — two years ago, Makki was edged out in the Republican Primary by Anna Paulina Luna, who she’ll face again in 2022. Makki made some quick jabs at Luna, calling her “Charlie Crist in a skirt.”
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, currently holds the seat, but is not seeking reelection, running for Governor instead.
