The topsy turvy Florida Governor’s race has thrown us one more curve ball. A new St. Pete Polls survey (8/18-19; 2,202 FL likely Democratic primary voters through an automated telephone system) now detects yet another Democratic candidate making a move. This time, it’s Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
According to the new St. Pete data, former US Rep. Gwen Graham continues to hold first place, but with a shrinking advantage (27-25-21-14%) over Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, Mr. Gillum, and billionaire Jeff Greene. Additionally, Mr. Gillum is the beneficiary of $3.5 million in new independent spending from a coalition of five liberal groups, which could help him to further close the gap before voters cast their final ballots on August 28th. In St. Pete’s late-July survey, he attracted only 12% support.
