Former Ambassador and former Democratic nominee for Congress Nancy Soderberg is endorsing Dolores Guzman for the open seat in House District 27
Guzman, of Deltona, is an elected member of the West Volusia Hospital Authority board. She is the only Democrat running for the seat being vacated by term-limited Republican Rep. David Santiago, also of Deltona. There are three Republicans seeking the seat, which represents much of western and southern Volusia County.
Soderberg lost the 2018 election for Florida’s 6th Congressional district 56%-44% to Republican Rep. Michael Waltz. The district includes all of Volusia County, plus portions of Lake, Flagler and St. Johns counties.
Soderberg’s nod is the campaign’s first major endorsement.
“I am going to run on the values of health care, education, affordable housing, and the things that really affect my community. Those are the most important things,” Guzman said. “And climate change.”
Over in West Volusia, four candidates have already filed to run for the 27th District State Representative seat David Santiago is vacating due to term limits. Three are Republican candidates: Webster Barnaby, Erika Benfield, and Zenaida Denizac. Dolores Guzman is the only Democrat so far.
