Sam Gibbons backs Bilirakis
Former U.S. Rep. Sam Gibbons, D-Tampa, is throwing his support behind Gus Bilirakis' re-election campaign. ""His good work and his demonstrated abilities make him as one who should be reelected," said Gibbons in an open letter to voters in District 9. "I feel that my 34 years in Congress representing a good part of Congressman Bilirakis' current district, qualifies me to make this endorsement. I am pleased to support the reelection of Congressman Bilirakis."
