A former two-term Republican state representative is eyeing a return to Florida’s political arena in a bid to take back his seat and turn the state’s economy around.

Bob Cortes, who previously served in the Florida House of Representatives from 2014-2018, filed to run for House District 30 this week. The district, which includes parts of Seminole County and Orange County, was previously held by Cortes before the 2018 elections.

The seat is currently held by Democratic Representative Joy Goff-Marcil, who narrowly defeated Cortez during the last election cycle.
