Big get: Mega fundraisers Mel Sembler and Jim McDougald endorse David Jolly in CD 13 special election

Just got off the phone with Republican David Jolly, who is running in the Special Election for Congressional District 13. He tells me that mega-fundraisers Mel Sembler AND Jim McDougald are endorsing his campaign.

That’s two big “gets” for Jolly and indicate that the establishment money is lining up behind Jolly to be the GOP nominee in what will be a tough race against Alex Sink (I am not even going to mention whatsherface.)
