Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, who pleaded guilty last month to one count of tax fraud in her federal case, will be running for a congressional seat again.

In a news release obtained by News4JAX, Brown on Thursday announced her candidacy for the 10th Congressional District of Florida — which is in the Orlando area and includes part of Brown's previous districts. Brown previously served in Florida’s 3rd and 5th congressional districts.

“I’ve represented most of the people of the new 10th District during my 24 years in Congress and I always earned huge support in this region,” Brown said in the news release. “Now I see our hard-won gains are being taken away from us.”
