Another write-in candidate joins state Senate District 12 race

TAMPA — Another write-in candidate has joined the increasingly crowded race to represent Florida Senate District 12.

Kimberly Renspie of Carrollwood Village submitted her papers Friday, listing assets of $2,500. She makes her living as a college counselor and resident adviser at Catawba College in Salisbury, N.C., according to the papers, which list her as a nonpartisan.

Judging by her Facebook page, she will still be a student at Catawba until she graduates in 2012, and her favorite movie is Elf.

Derek Crabb, an employee of Target and Petco, announced his write-in candidacy last week as well. Two better-known Republicans have long been in the running: State Rep. Kevin Ambler and County Commissioner Jim Norman.
