Plug Dusty Showers' name into Google and here's what you will find: row after row of pictures of a smiling man wearing a large pink bra.

Some bras are frilly, others plain; some were sent to him in the mail by fans. They're a gimmick the 42-year-old wildlife trapper from Oldsmar has used for years to raise money for breast cancer.

Four candidates already have announced plans to challenge Commissioner Susan Latvala, who has represented the North Pinellas district, covering Palm Harbor, East Lake, Oldsmar, and Tarpon Springs, since 2000.

The field so far includes two Republicans, Jack Fisher and Tim Keffalas, Democrat Jack McAdoo, and Showers, who has no party affiliation.
