Republican consultant Anthony Pedicini is the latest target of a negative mailer in the vitriolic House District 58 primary.
Dover businessman Lawrence McClure has more cash-on-hand than Plant City businesswoman and civic activist Yvonne Fry in the final days of their contentious House District 58 Republican primary campaign. With the latest financial figures coming in late Friday, McClure has raised a total of $135,485 versus Fry’s $112,790 through October 5. .
Early voting started Friday and will continue through Oct. 7 for a pair of special elections in Hillsborough County, one that could determine Temple Terrace’s next mayor and another to decide the GOP nominee in HD 58.
Tempers are flaring in the increasingly hostile Hillsborough County House District 58 contest, as early voting begins in a race marked by accusations of false attacks and heated threats.
As a registered nonprofit group, Save Southern Heritage can’t endorse candidates. However, they can provide “information” to voters, and the inference from the cards it’s mailed out to 3,000 households in House District 58 in eastern Hillsborough County indicates it likes the responses that Lawrence McClure gave the group, as opposed to Yvonne Fry, who opted not to respond to the organization’s questionnaire.
Accusations of bad business are the new line of attack among Republicans in the increasingly nasty House District 58 primary.
Presumably, Lawrence McClure will vote for himself in next month’s Republican primary election in House District 58. If so, it would be the first primary election in which the 30-year-old Dover native has voted.
