Mica officially files for reelection in 7th Congressional District


Congressman John Mica (R-Winter Park) filed for reelection in the 7th Congressional District yesterday, officially beginning his march for a 13th term.

Mica held his campaign kick-off in April (story HERE), but his filing along with an estimated 400K on hand will send a message to any potential challengers, as well as the dozen or so Republicans, many of them lawmakers who will be running for reelection themselves next year, that the longtime Congressman is staying put.

The Representative of the 7th District has shown little sign of slowing down, he was arguably the biggest advocate for the recently dedicated Veterans Hospital at Lake Nona, and has been investigating several operations for waste and abuse in his role the Oversight and Government reform Committee.

Mica drew minor opposition in 2014, with his general election opponent reportedly moving to Washington after he was frustrated with the lack of support he received from the Democratic party.
