I wasn't surprised to see that the St. Pete Times endorsed McBride. They've long since lost any moral authority. What's truly un-American about the SPT and our Ft Myers News-Press (Gannett-owned), these papers do not represent their communities. Both counties are Republican majority w/ far left newspapers. When a media conglomerate owns the local press and our public airwaves, the free-market no longer determines who survives. Money is simply funneled from porn, or children's toys to a failing paper or TV show to preserve a political agenda.
AP and Gannett Florida have no business calling themselves "journalists" or wielding those mighty pens, imho.

"I wasn't surprised to see that the St. Pete Times endorsed McBride."
Nor was I. The fact that they can endorse McBride after having printed the following column illustrates their lack of integrity in endorsing any political candidate.
Quite frankly, after the Troxler column appeared, I feared they MIGHT endorse Governor Bush. In that case, I would have had to violate my adherence to the rule of never voting for anyone the St. Pete Times endorses. At least now, I can stick to my rules.
