Rep. Cummings forgoes run for Bradley’s Senate seat

Posted

Rep. Travis Cummings (R-18) announced he will leave politics at the end of his term and wouldn’t run for Rob Bradley's District 5 seat in the Florida Senate.

“The hardworking people of Clay County have been incredibly generous to my family and me, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the 18 years of unwavering support,” Cummings said. “Public service has been the honor of my life, but getting back to my family and continuing to build my professional career is where I need to be. Jessica, Beckham, Fletcher and Hattie have made the sacrifices of public service right along with me, and I’m looking forward to spending more time with them.

“I’m proud of the work we’ve done for the people of Clay County – protecting our tax dollars, supporting our local businesses, and keeping our neighborhoods safe. North Florida folks work hard, we take pride in our communities and have faith in family and one another. It’s been an honor to serve them in Tallahassee.”

The 18th District covers most of northern Clay County.

After serving eight years each in the state legislature, Cummings and Bradley will reach their term limits ahead of the 2020 general election. Bradley’s wife, Jennifer, announced last week she was running to replace her husband. Cummings said he will support her candidacy.

“Jennifer and I are blessed to have the Cummings family in our lives, and I’m blessed to have a best friend like Travis. I’m proud of his decision to come home,” Rob Bradley said. “Travis has always put family first; now others know where his heart and priorities lie. Travis has devoted over 18 years of public service to his community. We are all better for it.”
