Davis Slamming His Own Team?



Jim Davis' new ad hits TV sets today and it takes a tough stand against the Legislature for creating an anti-consumer "loophole" in storm insurance. That his opponent, Rod Smith, voted for the bill is no surprise. Davis has often noted that on the campaign trail. But researchers at Camp Smith quickly found that a number of lawmakers supporting Davis also voted for the legislation, including state Rep. Lorrane Ausley, a member of the statewide advisory committee. Full release in comments.

Davis spokesman Josh Earnest responds: "These Democrats in the Statehouse are backing Jim Davis because they believe he's the candidate who will bring the new, independent leadership to Tallahassee that Florida's families need."
