During a debate at Jacksonville's River Club on Friday, Democrat Tracye Polson said she does not supporting defunding the police.

Today’s local special election to replace the late Tommy Hazouri on the Jacksonville City Council is drawing statewide interest. The Republican Party has sent out robocalls from Gov. Ron DeSantis supporting Jacksonville City Council candidate Nick Howland and repeating Howland's misleading claim that opponent Tracye Polson wants to defund police. Polson has said these claims are false.
