La Gaceta Endorses Neither Candidate in Congressional District 12

From “As We Heard It,” by Patrick Manteiga, Sept. 18, 2020

Congress District 12
Republican Congressman Gus Bilirakis has served the district, which covers parts of Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties since 2007.
He was never very influential when the Republicans were in control of the House. He is less so now that he is in the minority. He always kept a focus on veterans’ issues.
Bilirakis is a nice guy and he is more bipartisan than many of his Republican peers.
His challenger is Democrat Kimberly Walker, who is a U.S. Army and Florida Air National Guard veteran, holds a degree in information technology and is a defense contractor. Her wife is a public school teacher.
Bilirakis is heavily favored in this race and has a lopsided advantage in money and name recognition. Walker has done little to establish herself in this campaign.
La Gaceta has no endorsement in this race.
