Republicans held their majority in Lee County’s legislative delegation as GOP candidate Nick Thompson won the only state House seat. Thompson says his number one priority right now is to get ready for a special session to lower property insurance.
“ That’s the thing that’s going to be facing us immediately. I’m going up there Thursday for orientation and I will be working with House leadership on the ideas that are coming out of the task force on property insurance so that we can get ready for the special session.”
Thompson defeated Democratic attorney Pete Burkert to take the seat previously held by GOP Representative Bruce Kyle, who stepped down because of term limits.
