Two Broward State House races just got a bit more crowded. Robert Lee Lynch is seeking the Democrat nomination for the District 95 seat currently occupied by Rep. Hazelle Rogers. Lynch will face off against Roxanne Valies and Patrick Jabouin.

Lynch and his wife Ruth Roman Lynch are local Democrat consultants. In 2011, BrowardBeat.com exposed how Lynch and his wife, “Asked a judicial candidate last year for $1,000  to escort him through churches, give him ‘access’ to the black community and send out an e-mail blast to 2,500 voters.” At the time, Ruth Roman Lynch was the first vice chair of the Broward Democratic Party.

Sajan Kurian of Pompano Beach is seeking the Democrat nomination for the House 92 seat held by the term-limited Rep. Gwyn Clarke-Reed. Kurian is no stranger to Florida House politics. He serves as the district secretary for Rep. Shevrin Jones. His only opponent is Whitney Rawls of Pompano Beach.
