Jeb and the CFO race



Patty Cowherd admits she hasn't read up on the backgrounds of the two Republican candidates for chief financial officer. Even so, she's leaning heavily in the direction of Senate President Tom Lee, for one simple reason: Gov. Jeb Bush. "I haven't done a lot of research, but I saw the governor on television endorsing him (Lee), and that's good enough for me," Cowherd said as she munched sushi Wednesday evening at the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce Political Mingle.


What's good enough for Cowherd is music to Lee of Valrico, who is banking heavily on the popular governor's ability to deliver Republican votes in his Sept. 5 primary battle against Rep. Randy Johnson of Celebration. Story is here.
