Mike Fasano: Pinellas Congress primary may underscore stench of Fla House



Interesting point from Pasco County Tax Collector and former state Rep./Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, about the GOP primary results in the Congressional District 13 race: It's the second high profile race in recent months where the Republican Florida House member/candidate has lost. Republican state House candidate Bill Gunter last fall lost in the special election to succeed Fasano in the legislature.

"Recently, anyone associated with the Florida House Republicans loses," Fasano noted. "Gunter and now Peters. Is there a trend and/or a message there from the voters?"
