There is a new front-runner in the Democratic primary for Florida governor. Well, more like a new co-front-runner.
Billionaire Jeff Greene, who joined the race just last month, has rocketed into first place, according to a new survey from St. Pete Polls and commissioned by Florida Politics.
Greene is at 21.6 percent — a tenth of a percentage point higher than former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham.
“This poll confirms what I’ve seen firsthand campaigning across the state: Voters are sick and tired of politicians making false promises, and want to see a leader who can produce results,” said Greene in a statement. “The Democratic base is clearly looking for someone who can win in November and take on Trump, and Tallahassee Republicans in defense of Florida’s families.
“These results are exciting, but as we continue to reach voters from Key West to Pensacola, and Tampa to Titusville, I want folks to know one thing: We’re just getting started,” Greene added.
