Four Pinellas County mayors are backing Rep. Ben Diamond in his bid for Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
The mayors include Gulfport Mayor Sam Henderson, Safety Harbor Mayor Joe Ayoub, St. Pete Beach Mayor Al Johnson and Indian Rocks Beach Mayor Cookie Kennedy.
Diamond, who currently represents Florida House District 68 in St. Petersburg, is running to replace U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, who is leaving office to run for Governor in 2022.
The mayors all represent cities within CD 13.
Diamond faces former President Barack Obama national security advisor Eric Lynn and state Rep. Michele Rayner-Goolsby in the Democratic Primary next year.
