With the primary election in St. Petersburg’s mayor’s race barely over, Republican state Senator Jack Latvala is already ringing the alarm bells on behalf of his ally, incumbent Bill Foster.
On Facebook, Latvala growls:
“Congratulations to my friend Mayor Bill Foster for leading the race for St Pete Mayor into the runoff. Here’s hoping that the folks who run my political party in Tallahassee will wake up and give Bill the kind of help that the Democrats have given Rick Kriseman in the primary. Sure it’s a nonpartisan race but are we supposed to leave our guy by alone on the battlefield while the other side gangs up on him? Bill Foster is the last big city mayor in Florida who happens to be a registered Republican. Don’t think for one minute that doesn’t play a big part in the tens of thousands of dollars the Florida Democratic Party has put into this nonpartisan race!”
You hear that, Lenny Curry?
