Voters living in a swath of Central Florida extending from Buenaventura Lakes and Azalea Park to Kissimmee and Haines City have a chance to elect Central Florida’s first Hispanic state senator.

Senate District 14, a newly drawn, majority Hispanic seat, has drawn a pair of strong challengers: state Rep. Darren Soto, D-Orlando, and Will McBride, a Republican personal-injury lawyer.

Soto, 34, is a partner in an Orlando firm that specializes in family and commercial-real estate law. The son of a Puerto Rican father, Soto has been a member of the Florida House of Representatives since 2007.
