Glo Smith has a Master’s of Business Administration and is a successful entrepreneur with 30 years of experience growing jobs. She helped develop curriculum for the University of North Florida’s Small Business Resource Center.

Glo Smith won the Republican nomination for this seat in 2014, then went unopposed in the 2016 Congressional primary, and is poised to gain the seat now that longtime politician Corrine Brown is no longer in contention.

Glo Smith has also been endorsed by conservative radio host and former presidential candidate Herman Cain, along with current and former elected officials including State Sen. Aaron Bean, former State Sen. Stephen Wise, State Sen. Alan Hays and Jacksonville City Councilman Sam Newby.
