For Immediate Release:

According to 432 likely Florida Congressional District 1 voters, nearly 81% do not think their elected officials are doing enough to address the rate increases by Florida Power and Light while at the same time nearly 53% would vote for Rebekah Jones over incumbent Matt Gaetz, if the election were held today. Even in a hypothetical 4-way race with (Rep) Bryan Jones and (Dem) Peggy Shiller (both combined at 1%) Jones still have an 8-point lead.
