State House Hillsborough District 31

Rep-elect Stacie Laughton (D), the state's first openly transgendered lawmaker, resigned her seat after it came out that she committed several felonies under the name of Barry Charles Laughton Jr.[12] A special election to fill the seat took place on February 19, 2013. Candidates had until December 28, 2012 to file.[13]
Laughton attempted to run in the special election, but was disqualified on January 2, 2013. As this left one Democrat (Pam Brown) and one Republican (Elizabeth Van Twuyver) in the running, the general election was moved up from April 9 to February 19, which Brown won.[14][13]
