‘Tan Mom’ Patricia Krentcil announces bid for US Senate in Florida

A former New Jersey resident and minor celebrity has announced she is running for the United States Senate.
Patricia “Tan Mom” Krentcil announced she is running for the Senate in Florida.
Krentcil is running as a Republican and is looking to unseat Florida Sen. Rick Scott in 2024.
According to her official campaign website, “After filming a life changing docuseries called "Tan to 10", Patricia went out in the streets of Florida and came face to face with the heartbreaking issues affecting so many here. From the attacks on LGBTQ+ rights, equality, diversity, and beyond, Patricia is a champion for those who are underserved, and underheard.”
Krentcil, formerly of Nutley, first entered the public spotlight in 2012 when she was accused of bringing her then-6-year-old daughter with her into a tanning booth.
She was later acquitted of the charges and maintains no wrongdoing.
