FLORIDA’S 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Incumbent: Stephanie Murphy (D)

Challenger: Mike Miller (R)

Current Polling: Stephanie Murphy (D) 47, Mike Miller (R) 46 (St. Pete Polls, 8/30)

Why this race matters: Although Hillary Clinton carried this district by more than 7 points, minimal polling is available in this Orlando district. The first term Congresswoman has the cash advantage, but early polls show a tight race. Since the the 2016 nightclub shooting and the 2018 Parkland shooting, Stephanie has made gun control a central issue in her campaign, while also focusing strongly on education funding. This is a must-win for Democrats to have a shot at taking back the House.
