Rebecca Sue Sharp, a Ponte Vedra Beach resident making her first foray into politics, initially registered in January to run as a Republican against incumbent Rep. Ronald "Doc" Renuart.
"I just wanted to run against Doc," Sharp told our news partner, The St. Augustine Record.
When the district was redrawn, Sharp reregistered with no party affiliation, guaranteeing her a spot on the ballot in November against Renuart.
This move closed the primary election to Democrats and independents, according to the Record.
Sharp is a registered no-party-affiliation voter and chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Northeast Florida. She says she sees herself as "a George Washington-type Republican."
