Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, who has represented Florida’s 16th District in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2008, faces Democratic challenger Will Bronson in the Nov. 6 general election for the newly drawn District 17, which encompasses all of Hardee, DeSoto, Highlands, Okeechobee, Glades, and Charlotte counties and portions of Polk, Manatee, Hillsborough, and Lee counties.

After living in Palm Beach County during his first two terms, Rooney has said he will move his main office to Punta Gorda and live in the new district, probably in Charlotte County, if reelected to the House.
