Rep. Randy Fine, a self-described “conservative firebrand” from southern Brevard County, announced Thursday he will run in 2024 for a Florida Senate seat.
Fine will run in Brevard County’s Senate District 19, which will be open because Sen. Debbie Mayfield, R-Indialantic, faces term limits.
Fine was recently named chairman of the House Health & Human Services Committee after chairing the House PreK-12 Appropriations Subcommittee.

In a news release, he touted fighting “illegal immigration and wokeism across our state — and right here at home. And I have done it unafraid of the attacks that have come my way from the radical left.”
A former gambling industry executive, Fine reported a personal net worth of $28.7 million as of May 30. Fine was first elected to the House in 2016.
No other candidates have filed to run in 2024 in the Republican-leaning Senate district.
