Tallahassee’s two candidates for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination spent part of the weekend in central Florida. Mayor Andrew Gillum told residents at The Villages he has to show folks the selfies he took during his last visit to prove that Democrats live in the sprawling retirement community.
Gillum spoke at the Savannah Center Saturday, Here’s the story
Gwen Graham spent a workday with Habitat for Humanity in the Orlando area. She faulted the Legislature for sweeping money out of an affordable housing trust fund to balance the state budget – noting that Central Florida is the third most difficult region in the nation to find affordable housing. That story is here.
Graham and Chris King both are hammering the Legislature for its annual sweep of money out of William E. Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Funds to pay for other programs.
And while Gillum and Graham looked for votes in Central Florida, a poll of Tampa Bay area voters was released. The Public Policy Polling survey finds Philip Levine in the lead.
A look at the numbers suggest many voters have yet to focus on the race. Two-thirds of respondents were “unsure” when asked whether they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Gillum. Nearly two-thirds picked “unsure” when asked about Graham.
