After winning special elections for state House seats, Winter Garden Republican Bobby Olszewski and Miami Republican Daniel Perez have quickly started preparing for 2018 reelection bids.
Olszewski opened a campaign account Wednesday, a day after winning a special election to replace former Rep. Eric Eisnaugle, an Orlando Republican, in Orange County’s House District 44, according to the state Division of Elections website.
Perez, meanwhile, opened an account Thursday, after winning a Sept. 26 special election to replace former Rep. Jose Felix Diaz, a Miami Republican, in Miami-Dade County’s House District 116.
Perez is the only candidate who has opened an account to run next year in District 116. But Democrat Dawn Marie Antonis and Republican Usha Jain have opened accounts to vie with Olszewski in District 44.
