Smith v Davis
The Democratic race for governor got a bit nastier Monday, as the front-runners took stabs at the other's voting records and special interest money during a taping of Political Connections, a weekly show from Bay News 9 and the St. Petersburg Times.
Each accused the other of earning low scores from various interest groups. Smith dismissed a Davis attack on his low environmental rating by saying: "I've never been rated 419th in anything, and that's what Congress.org rated him in terms of his overall effectiveness." Davis said the rating was done by lobbyists.
