Alan Grayson
A U.S. House member and Democrat who was a very vocal figure in Washington during his first two years in office.

In 2012, Grayson ran for a newly-drawn District 9 House seat, and was voted back into Congress. In 2014 he was re-elected to that seat, which covers all of Osceola County, and parts of Orange and Polk counties.
