Christine Quinn is running for the District 14 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

TAMPA – Businesswoman Christine Quinn has filed paperwork to seek the Republican nomination for Congress in Florida’s 14th Congressional District.

The district includes parts of Hillsborough County and is currently held by Democrat Kathy Castor, whom Quinn described as a “liberal career politician.”

“As a businesswoman I expect members of Congress to get to work solving our nation’s problems. Americans deserve leaders willing to step up and fight for them, not special interest groups,” Quinn said.  “Career politician Kathy Castor has been in Congress for 13 years, collecting over $2,000,000 in salary.  In 13 years’ time and $2,000,000 later, Castor has sponsored only two bills which became law – not solving problems, but naming two post offices. We need a Member of Congress able to do more than just name post offices. Changing Washington starts right here in Tampa.”

Quinn, who lives in Tampa, is the founder and CEO of My Family’s Seasonings, a Tampa Bay-area company that produces and sells all-natural seasonings throughout the world, with products available online and in major retail grocery stores.

She has three daughters, one son, six granddaughters and one grandson.

She is one of two Republicans running for the seat. The other is Paul Sidney Elliott. The primary election is Aug. 18. The last day to register to vote in the primary or to change party affiliation is July 20. To register to vote, request a mail ballot, or update registration, go to
