Justice Prepares for General Election Fight
Rep. Charlie Justice (see photo), the Democratic candidate for Senate District 16, recently opened a new campaign headquarters in St. Petersburg at 6405 MLK (9th St N). He will also be hosting a mass canvass on September 16th.
He will face Rep. Kim Berfield, who defeated Rep. Frank Farkas in the Republican primary. Even in a low turnout race, her 58.8% to 41.2% victory (16,061 to 11,237) can be consdered relatively decisive.
This race for the open seat (incumbent Republican Jim Sebesta is retiring) is considered one of the most, if not the most competitive legislative seat in the state.
