Yesterday, as long expected, wealthy Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine officially joined the open Democratic primary for Governor. With the other major Democratic candidates coming from Tallahassee, Mayor Levine is so far the strongest person to hail from populous South Florida. A reported new St. Pete Polls survey finds former US Rep. Gwen Graham (D-Tallahassee) leading Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, Mayor Levine, and businessman Chris King for the Democratic nomination, 31-13-6-5%, respectively. Gov. Rick Scott (R) is ineligible to seek a third term.
