Pinellas County Republicans will decide next week who they want to pit against Democrat Alex Sink and others for a seat in Congress. During a debate today hosted by the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce, three diverse conservatives assured members, many of whom have homes or businesses in flood zones, they would take steps to combat rising insurance premiums. Current State Representative Kathleen Peters says that includes delaying scheduled rate hikes as a result of the Biggert-Waters Act.
