Another day, another significant endorsement for Jacksonville City Councilman Doyle Carter as he vies for the Duval County Tax Collector position.
Friday brought an endorsement for Carter from fellow Council Republican Scott Wilson, the Vice President-designate of the city’s legislative body.
This follows up a Thursday endorsement from Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams.
Carter is running against two other political veterans, Lake Ray and Jim Overton, in the GOP field. As well, Democrat Mia Jones is running, with the top two finishers moving on to the November ballot (regardless of party identification.
Ray is a former state Representative, Jacksonville City Councilman, and congressional candidate. Overton is a former Councilman, as well as a three-term Duval County Property Appraiser. Jones, like Ray, served on both the Jacksonville City Council and in the Florida House.
None of the four candidates announced May fundraising totals as of Friday morning.
Ray and Overton both banked $50,000 in April; Carter and Jones have yet to report any fundraising.
