Another budding Sink/McBride politician?



The Hillsborough County legislative delegation has a "ought to be a Law" contest where high schools nominate ideas, and the delegation picks one to push. Armwood High's sensible idea comes from Lexi McBride, daughter of former gubernatorial candidate Bill McBride and CFO Alex Sink.

During her mother's campaign, Lexi learned that political parties don't have to file frequent financial reports in the weeks immediately preceding an election. She thinks they should so the public can know who's influencing elections. "I've been exposed to a lot of politics," she said. "You see how it's a problem."
