TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Former Florida Department of Health data analyst Rebekah Jones announced Monday night she is running for Rep. Matt Gaetz's seat.
ABC 27 Capitol reporter Forrest Saunders asked how seriously she is taking this— her response: “Taking a human sex trafficker out of Congress? Very interested.”
Jones said she was originally planning to announce her candidacy next month; however, the comments from the DeSantis Administration following the Twitter suspension forced her hand.
