A poll a couple weeks out from the election placed Bean with a 12-point lead.
Gov. Ron DeSantis’ aggressive redrawing of the state’s congressional districts came through in North Florida, as U.S. Rep. John Rutherford slid into the new Florida’s 5th Congressional District while Sen. Aaron Bean, the GOP nominee in the new Florida’s 4th Congressional District, glided to victory over Democratic nominee LaShonda “L.J.” Holloway.
Bean took 60.5% of the vote across the district, which covers Nassau, Duval and Clay counties, although Holloway maintained a notable lead in Duval, with 55% of the vote in the county. Bean ran up the margin in Nassau and Clay, taking 74.8% of the vote to Holloway’s 25.1% in Clay County and 79% to Holloway’s 20.1% in Nassau.
