Tea Partier outraises Rob Wallace in challenge to Jim Norman

So much for Rob Wallace’s challenge to Jim Norman.

The former state representative, seen as a stalking horse for forces not excited with the prospect of Jack Latvala as Senate President one day, was out-fundraised by Tea Partier John Korsak.

Wallace raised just $8,655 and spent $3,084, while Korsak raised a surprising $11,090 and spent virtually noting.

Those kind of numbers will neither cower Norman, who has more than $104,000 left on hand, nor impress the money folks in Miami and Tallahassee.
