Taylor and Pappas likewise competing on Democratic side
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Sandy Adams is gone for good from the Congressional 6 race leaving Adam Barringer, GG Galloway, David Santiago and several others to battle it out on the Republican side, and likewise, Dwayne Taylor and George Pappas on the Democratic side.
Adams, a former one-term congresswoman, was clearly the frontrunner for both parties from the onset once Congressman Ron DeSantis announced he was forgoing a third two-year term to run for the US Senate that Marco Rubio was giving up in his run for the presidency.
But before she even announced she was running, former New Smyrna Beach Mayor Adam Barringer beat her to the punch when he became the first to throw his name in the ring. And he “As I withdraw from public life, I am both grateful for the opportunity to serve and apprehensive about the future. Our community and our nation faces a threat from violent jihadists at the same time that confidence in the founding principles of our republic is being eroded by cynical elitists,” Adams wrote in a statement.
