On a campaign call with reporters ahead of the looming Florida primary, Dan Kanninen, Bloomberg’s state director, said it is time for Democrats to consolidate behind one candidate and understand what the long term implications are of both Super Tuesday and the March 17 Florida primary.
With Florida ranking as the largest swing state in the general election, Democrats are already taking a look at the state with some of them seeing the I-4 corridor between Daytona Beach and St. Petersburg as the key.
Castor, who served more than three decades in law enforcement including six years as Tampa’s police chief, easily won the mayoral runoff on Tuesday, dispatching businessman David Straz.
Jane Castor was a heavy favorite after taking 48 percent in the first round early last month, just short of the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff. David Straz placed a distant second at 15.5 percent but survived to move on to the runoff.
