Jacksonville Rep. Jason Fischer to run for Congress

Florida House of Representatives
State Rep. Jason Fischer.

State Rep. Jason Fischer, a Republican from Jacksonville, announced Monday he will run for Congress in a redrawn Northeast Florida district.

“I am a conservative fighter with the record to prove it,” Fischer said in a Twitter post. “In Congress, I will stand strong for our conservative values and stop the Radical Left's agenda.”

His announcement also said: "Joe Biden and the Radical Left's agenda is out of control. I am running for Congress to take back America from the woke mob."

Fischer plans to run in Congressional District 4 in Duval, Nassau and Clay counties. The district was redrawn in a reapportionment plan approved last month by the Legislature. The plan has drawn legal challenges, which, if successful, could lead to revamping District 4.

Fischer has served in the state House since 2016 and had planned to run for Duval County property appraiser this year.
