Alan Cohn, a Democratic candidate challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, blasted Ross at a Tampa forum Friday for not having an adequate presence in Hillsborough County.
Cohn, who lives in New Tampa on the western side of Ross’s District 15, noted that Ross has no office in Hillsborough County even though nearly 60 percent of the registered voters in the district live in Hillsborough. Ross lives in Lakeland on the eastern side of the district.
“This is a Hillsborough County congressional seat … and guess what — my opponent does not have an office in Tampa or Hillsborough County, in the majority of the district,” Cohn said. “If you have a problem with Social Security, or a problem with the VA or the IRS, good luck. No one’s home.”
Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorses Alan Cohn for Congress
Alan is proud to have been endorsed by Planned Parenthood…
Planned Parenthood Action Fund today announced the endorsement of Alan Cohn in his bid for the U.S. House of Representatives (FL-15) against two-term anti-women’s health incumbent Representative Dennis Ross. The Action Fund is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
“Planned Parenthood Action Fund is proud to endorse Alan Cohn in his bid for the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Unlike his opponent, Alan Cohn understands that health care decisions should be left between a woman and her doctor, without political or government interference. If elected to Congress, he will be a critical ally for women’s health and rights and the services that Planned Parenthood health centers provide to one in five women in her lifetime.”
New poll shows CD 15 challenger Alan Cohn in virtual tie with Rep. Dennis Ross

With an aggressive Democratic campaign, voters in Florida’s 15th Congressional District could put investigative journalist Alan Cohn in an excellent position to unseat two-term incumbent Republican Rep. Dennis Ross.
Although the district has a history of supporting Republican candidates, the survey, conducted by the polling firm Anzalone Liszt Grove Research, found the CD 15 seat is vulnerable, something Cohn’s campaign attributes to the incumbent’s “low profile in the district” and Cohn’s reputation as an investigative reporter.
Cohn Calls for Minimum Wage Increase
Floridians want and deserve an economy that works for everyone. They believe a hard day’s work should earn a decent day’s pay. They believe everyone should have the opportunity to build a better and brighter future for themselves and their families. But, the current minimum wage forces many hard working Floridians to raise their families in poverty.
Numerous economists and experts have come to the same conclusion: raising the minimum wage is good for our economy, our workers, and our long-term growth.
I call on Congress to act and allow a vote on raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. This would give a long overdue pay raise to millions of men and women across the state, and lift thousands of Floridians out of poverty

A Word From Alan Cohn…
We may be Democrats, Republicans, or Independents, but we are all Americans. Right now, we are all tired and frustrated with a Congress and Congressmen incapable of taking action on any of the serious problems facing our nation.
I will represent those who don’t believe their voices are being heard in Congress. Those who want Congress to act when action is what’s needed. I will be a vote against blind partisanship and for working with people from both parties because neither party has a monopoly on good ideas.
