Jim Norman no longer listed on state elections website
Is Sen. Jim Norman still a candidate for re-election? No, according to the Florida Division of Elections website. Check the list here.
Norman and his staffers have not yet returned requests for comment. But state and Tampa Bay politicos have been buzzing about the developments since yesterday afternoon, and some are taking this as confirmation.
Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, said the developments bode well for his protege, state Rep. John Legg, R-Trinity. "I'm pleased for John Legg. Obviously he still has a campaign, both a primary and a general election. John Legg is definitely the favorite to be the next senator."
Now that ally Norman is out of the race, Fasano inticated that Sen. Jack Latvala, a candidate for future Senate presidency, would support Legg.
