Partisan alignment is continuing — with big names getting involved — in the Pinellas County at-large school board race between Laura Hine and Stephanie Meyer.
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, and county Commissioner Ken Welch have endorsed Hine, a no-party registrant who’s attracting Democratic support in the race.
Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, and state Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, endorsed Meyer, who is backed by many Republicans.
In the nonpartisan race, the candidates are not allowed to run representing parties or advertise party affiliation.
