Mitch Kates win streak ends
Since we recently published a puff piece on former Charlie Justice/Mary Mulhern campaign manager Mitch Kates, it seems only fair to note that the pro-wrestler-turned Democratic consultant just lost one in Sarasota. His client, incumbent city commissioner Mary Anne Servian, had a big financial advantage, but apparently went down to Dick Clapp's slow growth message. Officially it's a non-partisan election. Unofficially, it's an R win.
