ORLANDO, Fla. — Incumbent Congressman Darren Soto (D) is running for re-election for U.S. House District 9 in the November general election.

He will appear on Political Connections to discuss why he should return to Washington, as well as his plans to address critical issues like affordable housing and the crisis in Puerto Rico.

Soto recently beat former District 9 Congressman Alan Grayson in the August primary election.

He will face Republican Wayne Liebnitzky on the November ballot for the Florida district that covers Osceola County and parts of Polk and Orange counties.

District 9 has seen a recent transformation in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria with the influx of Puerto Rican evacuees in the region.

This will be the second time Soto and Liebnitzky will be facing each other in the general election for the District 9 seat, as they also ran against for the same seat in the 2016 general election.
