Johnson builds support in Jacksonville

Randy Johnson, who is battling Tom Lee to be the Republican candidate for state Chief Financial Officer, announced Duval County endorsements Friday.

Names include John Delaney, president, University of North Florida and former Mayor of Jacksonville; Rear Admiral Kevin F. Delaney, retired; Mike Hogan, Duval County Tax Collector; and state Reps. Stan Jordan and Mark Mahon. Full list in the comment section.

Earlier this week, Lee stood beside Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings, who will serve as honorary chair of his campaign. Gov. Jeb Bush has also thrown his support to the outgoing Senate President.

LATE UPDATE: Lee also announced late Friday afternoon the support of Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton.
