Political Newcomer Challenges Jeff Miller in GOP Primary
While he has won elections overwhelmingly for the last decade, U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., has recently drawn his second primary opponent in the 2014 election.
On Friday, political newcomer Kyle Kinser filed his paperwork to challenge Miller in the Republican primary. Kinser, a loss prevention supervisor, talked to Sunshine State News about his challenge to Miller who has represented parts of the Panhandle in Congress since winning a special election in 2001.
A self-described fiscal conservative, Kinser told Sunshine State News he supported reducing federal spending and cutting taxes while keeping the government’s promises to veterans and people on Social Security.
