Northeast Florida’s state legislative delegation has split in endorsements on the race between Jay Fant and Paul Renner for District 15 in the state House of Representatives.
In the past week, Fant has picked up endorsements from state Rep. Janet Adkins, R-Fernandina Beach, and Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights.
Renner previously won endorsements from state Rep. Daniel Davis, R-Jacksonville, who currently holds the seat covering Jacksonville’s Westside, and got backing from state Sen. John Thrasher, R-St. Augustine.
State Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, has not made an endorsement in the race. Part of Bean’s district goes into the Westside.
Renner and Fant are Republicans facing off in the Tuesday primary election.
