The race for House District 60 wasn’t expected to be too competitive – after all, the St. Petersburg-based district holds a Democratic advantage of more than 8,000 voters.
But Republican business woman Audrey Henson didn’t let that discourage her.
Henson has been fighting an uphill battle for HD 60 since June. That’s when she dropped her congressional campaign in pursuit of flipping the blue St. Pete district red – a mission strengthened by a hefty war chest and support from the Florida GOP.
Henson faces Democrat Lindsay Cross, an environmental scientist who has remained a competitive fundraiser even against Henson’s congressional-sized bank.
