Schiavo raising money for Davis



Michael Schiavo, who earlier this year endorsed Jim Davis for governor, has sent out a letter seeking up to $500 donations for the Tampa Democrat. "When the right wing had their chance, they cashed in on my private family tragedy for pure political gain," Schiavo writes. "But when Jim Davis had a chance, he stood up to them." The letter recounts how Davis and others in Congress fought the effort to intervene in the end of life decision of Terri Schiavo.

Of course, it could be argued now that Davis himself is now making political gain from the situation. The Terri Schiavo saga plays a prominent role in his stump speech, giving him one of his more aggressive talking points.
