House District 3 candidate Mariya Calkins maintains a financial edge in the primary to replace outgoing GOP Rep. Jayer Williamson.
Calkins holds more than $94,000 in her campaign’s war chest, per the Florida Department of State. The next closest GOP candidate, Robert Orth, holds only $8,000.
A former legislative aide, Calkins further enjoys the endorsement of Panhandle Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz.
“I endorse Mariya Calkins for Florida State House, District 3,” Gaetz said. “Mariya is a Patriot who will bring our Conservative Northwest Florida values to Tallahassee.”
HD 3 spans across portions of Santa Rosa County and Northern Okaloosa County.
