Haridopolos lands a Sembler, a Cardenas, and a France



The Examiner: ...Among the well-known donors to Haridopolos' campaign is NASCAR Vice President Jim France. There's also Frank Tsamoutales, a national finance co-chairman for Mike Huckabee in 2008, and before that for Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. (Haridopolos supported Huckabee in 2008.) One big business name is Brent Sembler, Vice Chairman of The Sembler Company, a commercial developer. Sembler's support is supposed to demonstrate that one of Haridopolos' rivals, former state House Speaker Adam Hasner, does not have a lock on his fellow Jewish Republicans' support.
