As primary time rolls closer, you might start to notice that political blogs have something to do again. Candidates are fund-raising like it’s going out of style, and campaigners are busy gathering votes in anticipation of upcoming ballots.
The race for the Democratic nomination has already attracted a number of candidates. County Commissioner Kathy Castor has some name recognition via her mom, and has done great things on the County Commission. State Senator Les Miller is also a well-qualified candidate and a Tampa native. However, if you’re looking for an up-and-comer with some great ideas and nothing but enthusiasm for putting them into action, check out Scott Farrell. He’s a UF grad that is pro-education, pro-business, and actually doing something to get out a message about alternative energy.
When there are this many good candidates, nothing but good things can come of the primary, but I think you’ve all guessed my endorsement.
