Times Endorses Lee



The St. Pete Times editorial board "strongly" recommended Tom Lee for the Republican chief financial officer nomination today. "In any number of areas, the state senator has demonstrated he is willing to stand up to powerful forces and take the long view over political expedience....(Republican rival Randy Johnson) has built his entire campaign to exploit homeowners' fears, and he has not been a particularly effective leader in the Legislature."

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune also has endorsed Lee, while the Naples Daily News is backing Johnson.
