Tallahasseean Loranne Ausley Announces CFO Bid
Loranne Ausley, a former state representative from Tallahassee, has announced that she intends to run for the Chief Financial Officer position being vacated by Alex Sink. Ausley, a Democrat, had been running for the state Senate and raised about $274,000 for that campaign. However, she now moves to a race in which the Democratic party had no major candidate to take on the winner of the Republican primary. The Republican primary features current Senate President Jeff Atwater against state representative Pat Patterson.
