Tuesday Morning Political Headlines: Plakon vs. Castor Dentel “Gets Real”, a Replacement for Wood

In Uncategorized on October 16, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Busy morning today as well roll towards election day in just a couple of weeks.

One of the biggest State House races in Florida is State Rep. Scott Plakon and school teacher Karen Castor Dentel. Both parties want that seat really bad and we’ve got some new stuff on that. There is a one on one debate between the two on public television and a story about possible violations from Castor Dentel concerning her current position as a school teacher. There could be a conflict of interests with advertising her teaching occupation while running for office and seeking an another position during the campaign. When asked about the email on during the debate, Dentel says “It didn’t get to that level” but, in the complaint itself and in a later newscast those emails were shown.

Also, the search will begin for a replacement in the Orange County Tax Collector race. Yesterday morning, 96 year old, Earl K. Wood died after almost 5 decades in office.

Those stories and another debate tonight between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Those stories lead your Tuesday morning political headlines.
