Sunburn for 7/16: A morning read of what's hot in Florida politics


The Florida Retail Federation enjoyed a successful 2012 legislative session, although one of its priorities – the equalization of online tax collection requirements — was and continues to be stymied. The FRF expects to be an active player in the upcoming legislative elections and is endorsing a slate of candidates supportive of the retail industry.

Among the endorsed candidates are: Rob Bradley in SD 7, Dorothy Hukill over Frank Bruno in SD 8, John Legg over the field in SD 17, Jim Frishe over Jeff Brandes in SD 22, Mack Bernard over Jeff Clemens in SD 27, Ellyn Bogdanoff over Maria Sachs in SD 34 and Ron Saunders in SD 39.

The FRF did not issue an endorsement in SD 4 between Aaron Bean and Mike Weinstein or SD 24 between Rachel Burgin and Tom Lee.

As for the interesting endorsements made by the FRF in House races, it’s supporting Michelle Rehwinkle-Vasilinda over Bradley Maxwell in HD 9, Jake Raburn in the GOP primary for HD 57 and Ana Rivas Logan in HD 116.

A full listing will be posted on SaintPetersBlog later Monday morning.
