Bondi, McCollum, Putnam, Rubio dominate straw poll



More results from the Pinellas GOP straw poll. Two quick thoughts-Charlie Crist has NO coattails, and these are hardly typical voters when the likes of Belinda Noah, Jim Lewis, and Tim Devine show up on the score board. All three candidates for attorney general spoke (local Pam Bondi of Tampa definitely bested the field in speaking) as well as Senate candidate Bob Smith (who provided a Bill Clinton impersonation); and Ag commissioner Adam Putnam.

CFO: Pat Patterson 30,Jeff Atwater 132

Ag Commish: Adam Putnam 135, Carey Baker 34

Attorney Gen: Jim Lewis 1, Holly Benson 15, Jeff Kottkamp 28, Pam Bondi 123

Gov: Tim Devine 1, Ed Heeney 1, Paula Dockery 28, Bill McCollum 123

Sen: Belinda Noah 1, Marion Thorpe 1, Bob Smith 7, Charlie Crist 54, Marco Rubio 106
