Bean will run in the redrawn Congressional District 4, which is made up of Nassau and Clay counties and part of Duval County. It overlaps some areas, such as Nassau County, that Bean has long represented in the Legislature.
In a statement announcing his candidacy, Bean touted conservative positions.
“Our nation is at a crossroads, being ripped apart at the seams by a liberal agenda that stifles economic growth and seeks to silence family values,” Bean said in the statement. “We’re enduring rising inflation, gas prices that are crippling hard-working Americans, unprotected borders, a loss of respect for law and order and constant federal overreach by a government attempting to tell us that they know what is best. I will not rest on the sidelines.”
