Political newcomer Jose Javier Rodriguez has a tough fight on his hands vs. former state Sen. Alex Diaz de la Portilla in the state House District 112 race.

"I want to take that same leadership to Tallahassee to make sure we invest in our children, help our businesses and stop Rick Scott's outrageous property insurance increases that hurt our families.
