McBride wins straw poll



U.S. Senate race results from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Political Hob Nob Thursday night:

Will McBride 125

Bill Nelson 70

Katherine Harris 37

LeRoy Collins 18

Peter Monroe 5.

"I appreciate greatly the overwhelming support given me by members attending the Hispanic Chamber’s meeting,'' McBride said. "The strong support of the Hispanic community, coupled with the wins we have had in GOP and chamber of commerce straw polls around the state, sends the same message: voters want a change from what has become standard politics in Washington."
