Deegan put up a great campaign, albeit a longshot one, against John "Trump" Rutherford.  I think she should run for City Council first and hone her chops there.  What district would she be in?  Rory Diamond's?  Now that would be a fun race to watch.

Yes - she is in Rory Diamond's district.  That would be an interesting race!

Interesting... I like the thought process. Do we really want  former newscasters or name recognition mayors?  Gimme local government participants...
Degan at least has proven to be an engaged and accomplished Jacksonville native beyond her news career. She may not be your cup of tea but she shouldn’t be dismissed as just a name.

Name and a face?

Not sure if she’s looking at local politics but watching her debate showed her competence and command of national issues.

She could also run at large, which would give her a better chance than the heavily Republican Beaches district. But if she ran in 2023 she’d presumably be running against Ron Salem who’d be tough to beat.

It appears supporters of Matt Carlucci are holding a Meet & Greet this Sunday.

Over the last week, Donna Deegan has made some pretty serious moves in the direction of a bid for Mayor, establishing a political committee and making overtures of consideration for the job.

I know Deegan lost 39-61 against Rutherford in 2020, but what was the result in the Duval portion of the district?  I would assume somewhat better than the district as a whole.

Wow. That’s the part of Duval gerrymandered to lean heavily Republican.

Interestingly, I got an email from Donna this evening. She announced her Donna for Duval PAC, and included this, "I promised you I would stay involved and keep working – and that’s a promise I intend to keep. Right now, I’m looking seriously at how I might best serve our community next including a possible run for Mayor."  ... and, she asked for money.

Tacachale - as you said, she didn't do that badly in very Red precincts in Duval
