Miller Has Opponents

The Local Puppy Trainer reports that Republican Congresscritter Jefferson Beauregard Miller of Chumuckla [Santa Rosa 850] is being challenge this time by three people: Libertarian Calen Fretts of Valparaiso [Okaloosa 6336], Reform Party’s William Drummond of Chipley [Washington 3592], and Democrat James Bryan of Paxton [Walton 753]. The district was redrawn and now includes more rural areas. All three are running to the right of Miller, including the very Blue Dog Democrat James Bryan who has challenged him before.

Fretts was quick to point out that he was running because Miller voted for $5 trillion of the deficit. Fretts vowed to vote against all spending.

All but one of these guys are from North of I-10 and all live in small towns and villages. The information in the brackets is the county and population of their towns. Valparaiso is the only town on the coast.

Lots of names, but not much difference.
