Oldsmar Democrat Alexander William McDonald opened a campaign account Wednesday.

House Criminal Justice Chairman James Grant, a Tampa Republican, has drawn a second Democratic challenger as he runs for re-election in 2020.

Oldsmar Democrat Alexander William McDonald opened a campaign account Wednesday to try to unseat Grant in House District 64, which is made up of parts of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, according to the state Division of Elections website.

McDonald joined fellow Democrat Jessica Harrington, who opened an account in December to run for the seat.

Grant had raised $35,350 for his campaign account as of Aug. 31, while Harrington had raised $13,964, finance reports show.
