Democrat Tyrona Clark-Murray beat Republican Mike Muldoon in a May 16 runoff for Jacksonville’s City Council District 9.
The election was Jacksonville City Councilwoman Clark-Murray‘s first test after winning a special election last August.
Retired accountant Muldoon, who initially was running for a Republican-leaning City Council District 14 before it was struck down by a federal court as a racial gerrymander, far outraised any other candidate: hauling in about $150,000 as of February. All of the other candidates had raised less than $15,000 at that point.
While the district is heavily Democratic, Gov. Ron DeSantis came close to winning the most votes in the district last November, coming up short in the area by five percentage points.
