Detert gets a hand from Crist in SD 23
Yes, Crist is helping raise money for Detert. During the GOP primary, the governor backed Michael Grant. But he is now lending his popularity to Detert, a former state representative who is facing Democrat Morgan Bentley.
Yesterday's event at Boone, Boone, Boone, Koda & Frook was technically a host committee reception for a fundraiser that will happen Oct. 22 at Mattison's Forty One in Sarasota. Still, some people dropped off checks, minimum $100. Also in attendance: RPOF Chairman Jim Greer, Sens. Lisa Carlton and Mike Bennett, Rep. Doug Holder, and former Sen. John McKay.
