"Am I helping a friend? Yes. Am I his finance consultant? No I'm not,'' said Herberger, Jeb Bush pal and fundraising consultant to the state GOP. "Joe Negron is a friend of mine. I'm not out there actively raising money for Joe Negron, although he is a friend of mine and I've given him some advice and counsel."
Herberger, who says she's also donated to Negron's campaign, stressed that her support for Negron is no indication of the governor's preference.
