Guarina Torres of Delray Beach is the Republican running for Hardy’s seat in Palm Beach County. She will face either Jervonte “Tae” Edmonds or Clarence “Chief” Williams in the Special General Election, depending on who wins the Democratic Primary.
“Ms. Torres is a passionate, deeply religious, conservative, a Latina mother of four wonderful adult children, and has an impressive resume as both an educator in the Palm Beach County school system and as a small business owner,” according to a news release her campaign manager released. She ran for House District 89 in 1996 as a Democrat, but said she changed her registration to Republican.
“I don’t think anyone can sit on the sidelines anymore especially when the country is headed the wrong way,” Torres said, explaining why she is running for office. “I strongly support DeSantis’ policies. We are one of the few states that is doing what needs to be done to protect not only Floridians, but the whole country.”
