Qualifying: Day 2 in Hillsborough
Republican state Sen. Ronda Storms became the first candidate to qualify for the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser race Tuesday, the second day to do so. No word yet on Republican incumbent Rob Turner.
In one of the other potentially high-profile contests locally, Democrat Tom Scott, a former county commissioner and Tampa City Council member, and Republican Rich Glorioso, a departing state representative, qualified for the Supervisor of Elections race. Deputy Craig Latimer, deputy to current elections supervisor Earl Lennard, who is retiring from the post, filed his paperwork Monday.
