A signal Jack Latvala won't take on Jeff Brandes for Fla Sen?

Nothing is confirmed yet, but here's a sign that state Rep. Jim Frishe - and not state Sen. Jack Latvala - will take on state Rep. Jeff Brandes in Senate District 22, covering south Pinellas and part of Tampa: We hear that a campaign volunteer for Frishe has been calling people to meet at Datz deli to walk south Tampa neighborhoods with Frishe.

Latvala and Frishe have talked about essentially switching districts, with Latvala running against Brandes and Frishe running instead for Senate District 20 in north Pinellas. But Why would Frishe be planning a south Tampa canvassing day, if he expects to run in a district that doesn't include south Tampa?

Stay tuned.
