Nick DiCeglie bests Eunic Ortiz in SD 18

by The 100 Companies

Rep. Nick DiCeglie will move his office to the Florida Senate.

The Pinellas County Republican bested Democratic opponent Eunic Ortiz in the race for Senate District 18 Tuesday night with 56.89% of the vote to Ortiz’s 43.11%.

DiCeglie will replace Republican Sen. Jeff Brandes in what was Senate District 24 before redistricting. 
The district has a Republican edge. Nearly 140,000 voters are Republican, while just over 125,000 are Democrats. Still, it’s a fairly purple district with nearly 113,000 non-partisan voters.

And while the seat was open, DiCeglie had the advantage of being an experienced legislator, and a strong fundraising advantage.
