Today, Charlie Crists’ campaign released a list of potential candidates currently being vetted to join him on the ticket for Florida’s Gubernatorial race.
The pair will face off in 2022 against Governor Ron Desanstis and Lieutenant GovernorJeanette Nuñez.
If Jenkins is ultimately selected for the position, she will have to resign her seat as Brevard County School Board District 3 Member to run. Florida Statute states that if there is a vacancy on any school board, the vacancy SHALL be filled by the Governor regardless of the time remaining in the vacant term. When she was elected, Jenkins stated she only planned to serve for one term and would not seek reelection.
Jenkins has frequently made national headlines in fighting for her positions and policies that go against Governor Desantis’ when it comes to protecting children and school staff members from Covid-19 and advocating for LGBTQ+ students.
