Orlando upset?



With just over a week to go before the Sept. 5 primary, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando held a straw poll Thursday night at its political mixer at the airport Crown Plaza Hotel.

Straw polls are free, and you get what you pay for. But political observers did note in the Chief Financial Officer race that Tom Lee edged out Randy Johnson in his own backyard.

Lee picked up 102 votes and Johnson came next with 76. Democrat Alex Sink took 64 votes and longshot Republican Milt Bauguess got 9.
