Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) has announced that she is seeking a fifth term in Florida’s 5th Congressional District, which includes Citrus, Hernando, Sumter and parts of Lake, Levy, Marion, Pasco and Polk Counties.
At the Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club on Friday, Brown-Waite said with a smile, “The rumors of my pending retirement, are greatly exaggerated.”
The traditionally republican territory has been easily held Brown-Waite in her past bids for the seat. However, under the wave of anti-incumbent fever that is sweeping the electorate, her moderate republican views may not make her the shoe-in she has been in the past.
Republican challenger, Jason Sager has admitted that the race will be tough, but believes he is ready for the task.
Three democratic candidates will be vying for Brown-Waite’s seat as well; Thomas J. Doolan, James John Piccillo and H. David Werder, will round out the field in the primary election, scheduled to be held on August 24th, 2010.
Brown-Waite has been popular among her voters in her district and maintains personal contact and with her local constituents through an office located at the county court house in Brooksville.
In addition to her political news, Brown-Waite also announced that she will be getting married in the spring. The winner on that ballot is her year-long fiancé, Anthony “Tony” Selvaggio.
Selvaggio will be Brown-Waite’s second husband. Her first, Harvey, died in August 2008 after a long bout with illness. They had been married for 30 years.
