Those LL Beans Were Made For Walking



From the Davis campaign today: "TAMPA – Lacing up the boots given to him by Walkin’ Lawton Chiles’s wife, Rhea, at the Florida Democratic Party Conference last December, candidate for governor and Democratic frontrunner Jim Davis was joined in Tampa today by more than 50 dedicated supporters who participated in the first “Door-to-Door with Davis” event of his campaign for governor. Davis and his wife, Peggy, and the band of supporters walked through communities in West and South Tampa to talk with their neighbors about Davis’s long record of public service and his vision for using the office of governor to Keep Florida’s Promise....

“When I ran for the state legislature in 1988, Peggy and I knew our grassroots campaign was making a difference when a man answered his door and told me that he was supporting my campaign and would vote for me on Election Day – but only if we stopped coming to his door to ask for his vote,” said Davis. “Now, I am running for governor, and together, we’re building an army of supporters in every community in Florida to talk about the issues facing the future of this state and my vision for Keeping Florida’s Promise.”
