Looks like Keith Gross (D-MD, FL & GA) might have some competition in the event he is able to stay in the race.
On July 1, Michelle Conlon started to collect the 1,500 signatures she will need by July 8 to be on the Nov. 4 ballot. Conlon would not say whether Democrat leadership led her to vie for the seat, but said she entered the race after “several people” approached her about fears that Gross’ name might be removed from the ballot, leaving Jacobs unopposed in the November elections. “It is not the ideal situation, but I was in a position of having to make some difficult choices. I don’t know if anyone is sure if it is going to be a two-person race, a three-person race, or only one person on the ballot,” Conlon said.
Shockingly, “A message left with Gross’ campaign was not immediately returned.”
Anyway, Conlon already has a temporary campaign website set up, although it’s unclear if she’ll have the necessary signatures by July 8.
