SaintPetersblog reports Bill Edwards, a well-known and well-financed Republican supporter, has bankrolled a campaign mailer for Lisa Wheeler-Brown, "preferred choice of much of the local Democratic Party establishment."
There is a lot at stake for baseball fans, with Wheeler-Brown vowing to give Mayor Rick Kriseman the fifth vote he needs to get the Rays MOU approved; while her opponent, Will Newton, has indicated he would not.
But there may be even more at stake for Edwards, who could benefit from the Rays leaving St. Pete so he can move ahead with his Rowdies stadium ask?
Of course, unforced errors like this and this won't help Wheeler-Brown, Edwards, or Rays fans in Tampa...
