Davis on Endorsements



No matter how upbeat he seemed Monday, Jim Davis is coming off a tough weekend. Several major newspapers, including the St. Petersburg Times, endorsed his opponent in the Democratic primary for governor.

"Of course I'm disappointed," Davis said of the Times. "I'm going to work hard to try to win the primary and earn the endorsement in the general. As far as Palm Beach (Post) is concerned, Rod Smith's sort of like their favorite son."  The Daytona Beach News-Journal and Lakeland Ledger also endorsed Smith.

"I got Fort Meade (Leader)," Davis said. "Now don't leave out Fort Meade. And La Gaceta."

"It's early," Davis added. "I feel very good."
