According to exclusive poll results obtained by this blog, Pasco School Board member Kathryn Starkey has a narrow advantage over Richard Corcoran and Fabian Calvo in the Republican primary for House District 45.  Starkey leads Corcoran and Calvao 28% – 21% – 15% according to this poll taken on March 17 & 18  and has a margin of error of 4.9%.  Keep in mind, this is not my poll, so I cannot verify the polls’ results, but my source for this information is from the same source which provided the spot-on polling data during the St. Petersburg Mayoral Race.  None of the candidates are known to a majority of voters, although Starkey and Calvo enjoy strong Favorable/Unfavorable ratios.
