Former senators James Espaldon and Frank Blas, Jr. both filed this morning under the republican ticket.

Blas added, "I've been inspired by being back in the family business of the many opportunities that exist and I want to bring that kind of vigor, that kind of spirit, that kind of hope for our people our people."
