Cash gap spreads in HD 12 clash

Jacksonville’s House District 12 will see a competitive election next November between incumbent Republican Clay Yarborough and Democrat Tim Yost.

Clearly not taking re-election for granted, Rep. Yarborough posted his strongest total since June: $21,750 of new October lucre.

Big Pharma was a well represented interest group; $3,500 came from drug companies, including Pfizer and Merck.

Local contributors included “Sleiman Holdings,” the company of local shopping mall developer Toney Sleiman. And “Wiles Boselli LLC,” a lobbying group run by Susie Wiles and former Jaguar legend and current Ballard Partner Tony Boselli.

As well, JAXBIZ — the political arm of the Jacksonville Chamber — donated $500. As did “Building a Better Economy,” the political committee of Chamber CEO Daniel Davis.

Yarborough has roughly $73,000 on hand.

Democrat Yost brought in $1,208 of donations from 19 contributors, including HD 15 Democratic hopeful Tracye Polson.

He finished October with roughly $2,300 on hand.
