St. Petersburg City Council member Robert Blackmon jumped to the second spot in a recent poll St. Pete Mayor’s Race, putting him ahead of fellow City Council member Darden Rice.
Former Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch continues to lead the pack.
But with ballots already hitting mailboxes, 21% of the city’s electorate is still undecided, according to the latest survey from St. Pete Polls.
In the Primary, Welch leads with just over 23% support, with Blackmon trailing at just under 22%. That’s a significant jump for Blackmon, who, in the previous poll taken June 21, collected just 12% support.
