  • Mark Foley (R) - incumbent. (hw) (cw)
  • Joe Negron (R) - replacement
  • Tim Mahoney (D) (cw)
  • Results: Mahoney won 49-48%
  • Foley admitted writing creepy emails to a 16 year old former page, and decided to withdraw from his re-election campaign.[2] According to state law, Foley's name had to remain on the ballot, and the Florida Republican party nominated State Rep. Joe Negron to run in his place and would receive any votes Foley still garnered.[3] The Republican-controlled Board of Elections ruled that county officials may place signs inside the polling place stating that Negron replaced Foley.[4] However, that ruling was been challenged in court and was overtruned.[5]
