Susan Latvala endorsed by Equality Florida
Equality Florida, a state organization for Florida's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender residents, has endorsed Susan Latvala for re-election to the Pinellas County Commission's District 4 seat for north Pinellas. Latvala had been a crucial vote in 2008 to extending the county's human rights ordinance to include gay, lesbian and bisexual people.
But as a tipster notes, what's more interesting is Latvala is the only Republican endorsed so far, though the group is still interviewing candidates. She faces Democrat Bob Hackworth in the general election.
