(FLORIDAPOLITICS.COM) – Robyn Hattaway won’t run for the Senate District 19 seat, but will instead vie for a House seat in 2026. The move all but assures that Rep. Randy Fine will win the GOP nomination in the SD 19 race.

“It has become clear that there is not a viable path for me to serve in the State Senate this year,” said Hattaway, a lawyer and former Port Canaveral Commissioner, in a prepared statement.

Instead, she’ll run for the House District 31 seat, which covers northern Brevard County, including Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island. The seat is currently held by Rep. Tyler Sirois, a Merritt Island Republican, who will be term-limited in 2026, provided he wins re-election this year.

“My passion for public service remains, so I will offer myself for consideration as a candidate for State House in District 31 next election cycle,” Hattaway said.

“I am so grateful to the family and friends who have supported me and hope they know I remain steadfast in my commitment to work for the betterment of all Brevard County residents.”

Hattaway had raised $84,000 as of May 31 and spent $13,000, including a $1,781.82 check on May 30 to the Department of State to qualify for the race. Eight days later, she wrote to the Department of State’s Division of Elections that she was changing contests.
