Florida Governor Calls Special Election
Gov. Rick Scott signed an executive order calling for a special election to replace state Sen. Jeff Clemens.
A special primary will be held on January 30, 2018, with a special general election to follow on April 10. Clemens resigned his Senate District 31 seat on October 27 after reports stated he had an extramarital affair with a lobbyist.
The winner of the election will serve the remainder of Clemens’s term, running through election day in 2020.
