State Rep. Lauren Melo, R-Naples, has drawn a Democratic challenger as she seeks another term, while candidates have filed paperwork to run for two House seats that will be open in November because of term limits.

Naples Democrat Arthur Oslund opened a campaign account this week to challenge Melo in House District 82 in Collier and Hendry counties, according to the state Division of Elections website.

Meanwhile, Englewood Democrat Tony Dunbar opened an account to run in House District 75 in Charlotte and Sarasota counties.

That seat will be open because House Majority Leader Michael Grant, R-Port Charlotte, faces term limits.

Republican Danny Nix Jr is also in the race. In Brevard County’s House District 33, Palm Bay Republican Michael Limongello opened an account to try to succeed term-limited Rep. Randy Fine, R-Brevard County. Limongello became the seventh candidate to file paperwork for the race.
