JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's no secret, the state senate race has gotten nasty. You've seen the attack adds between John Thraser and Dan Quiggle, but there are two other candidates who want the job.
It's a contentious race for District 8, and voters will go to the polls Tuesday to decide a winner.
Jim King was a man many admired and looked to for help in this community. His death in July left a gapping hole in the Florida Senate, one that four republicans are now hoping to fill.
Dan Quiggle is a father of three and local businessman. He wants lower taxes and to create new jobs.
John Thrasher is the former Speaker of the Florida House, who wants fully funded public education and affordable health care for everyone.
Art Graham has been a city councilman since 2003. He's a firm believer of pro life and off shore drilling.
Stan Jordan is a school board member and former state and local leader. He wants incentives for small businesses to create jobs. He also wants to cut taxes.
Four candidates, four different platforms, but each with the same goal to live up to Senator King's legacy.
The polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and will close at 7 p.m. For information on where you need to go to vote, click on the related link.
