Here's an article in the Tampa Bay Times about David Koller:
Koller is the third person and first Democrat to file to challenge Spring Hill Republican Rep. Rich Nugent, who is seeking a third term next year.Additional details about Koller and the kind of candidate he'll be in the 2014 race:
He said he has grown increasingly frustrated with the partisan gridlock in national politics.
"I tell my children that if you feel you can effect change for the better, then you have an obligation to do it," the married father of four said Wednesday. "This is a calling."
Koller describes himself as a social progressive and fiscal conservative who would make a jobs bill a priority to improve the nation's schools and infrastructure. He said the tea party's obstructionists have hijacked the Republican Party and that Nugent's voting record on the debt ceiling and the budget have hurt underprivileged people in his district.If you are looking to get involved in David Koller's campaign, links below:
"I believe he marches to whatever the tea party wants and not constituents," Koller said. "It's an absolutist point of view."
In a statement, Nugent said he "ran as a conservative, was elected as a conservative, and I vote as a conservative," but is proud of his record working with Democrats to pass legislation on issues ranging from mental health to tax fraud.
