Three candidates on Monday qualified via citizen petition for an upcoming special election in state House District 72. Republican James Buchanan, Democrat Margaret Good and Libertarian Alison Foxall all collected more than the required 305 signed petitions from registered voters within the district, according to Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner. The deadline to qualify by petition was Monday at 5pm. Two other candidates, Republican Alexandra Coe and Democrat Ruta Jouniari, have also filed for the seat. Candidates may still qualify by paying a filing fee of $1,781.82 for partisan candidates and $1,187.88 for candidates running with no party affiliation. The deadline to qualify through the fee is Friday at noon. A primary election, if necessary, is scheduled for Dec. 5, with the special election set for Feb. 13.
