Republican Marva Preston Files for Florida State Senate District 3

Republicans looking to flip Florida Senate District 3 may have found a real candidate to unseat a Democratic in the left-leaning district.

Marva Preston, a retired police officer and ordained minister, is looking to bring her conservative values to SD 3 in 2020 with Democratic Sen. Bill Montford facing term limits.

The 3rd District, encompassing Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hamilton, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla counties, previously represented the 6th district before it was redrawn. The district is known to lean left, with liberal strongholds like Tallahassee helping Montford carry the seat with over 67 percent of the vote in 2016.

Preston joins a still-adolescent Republican field, with the only other Republican being outspoken activist and blogger Benjamin Horbowy.
