Donna Deegan for Congress

The First Coast deserves a Congresswoman who will listen and get things done.

Born and raised on Jacksonville’s southside, Donna Deegan spent her career doing just that.

As an award-winning journalist and evening news anchor for First Coast News, she held those in power accountable and shed light on how national issues impacted our community. Donna has shown her willingness to fight for truth, and for us.

Yet her toughest challenges have come outside of the newsroom. Donna is a three-time cancer survivor. During that journey she heard the voices of our underserved community and founded the DONNA Foundation to provide financial assistance to families facing breast cancer.

As a long-distance runner, Donna joins thousands from around the country and the world in the annual 26.2 with Donna: The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer. The event has raised millions to support breast cancer research and to provide help to families who too often are crushed under the debt of a cancer diagnosis.

Donna is running for Congress to:

  • Ensure all Floridians have access to quality, affordable health care
  • Protect our senior’s earned Social Security and Medicare benefits
  • Guard Florida’s most important economic asset, our coastline

She will lean into the challenges facing our children and rise above partisan bickering to bring all voices into the conversation.

She knows us, she gets us, and as she’s always done, she’ll make good things happen for the First Coast.


Donna is a graduate of Bishop Kenny High School and Florida State University, a mother of two, and lives with her husband, Tim, in Atlantic Beach.
