With GOP Primary Victory, David Jolly Vows to Repeal Obamacare
David Jolly emerged victorious in the Tuesday GOP primary for Florida's 13th Congressional District, winning with 44.5 percent of the total vote.
In a statement released shortly after he was declared the winner, Jolly said he would remain faithful to his constituents and would also work to repeal Barack Obama's signature health-care plan.
“I am humbled and encouraged by our victory tonight, and I thank you very much for your support in this race for the future of Pinellas County,” said Jolly. “The choice in this race is now between a liberal politician from Hillsborough, backed by Washington, and a Pinellas County Republican who is running for you. While my opponent defends Obamacare, despite the mess of broken promises and the threat it poses to every family and every business, I will work to repeal Obamacare, right away, and replace it with an affordable, private-sector solution that actually fulfills this promise: 'If you like your insurance, you can keep it.' This is a Pinellas County race, and I am in this to win for the people of Pinellas.”
The late C.W. Bill Young, who represented CD 13, had served in the House of Representatives for over 40 years before passing away on Oct. 18, 2013. The special general election to fill the congressional seat will be held on March 11.
