Jeffrey Rhodes will get a re-match against Tampa City Council member Orlando Gudes this year. And this time, he has a scandal to run on.
Rhodes lost to Gudes four years ago by just over 150 votes. Since then, Gudes has faced a sexual harassment investigation that led to him resigning as City Council Chair and to Mayor Jane Castor saying she would fire him if she could.
Seems a good way to earn back those lost votes.
Already, Rhodes has raised nearly $9,000 while Gudes has brought in just $105. Two other candidates are also in the District 5 race.
