Robert Blackmon solidifies No. 2 spot in St. Pete Mayor’s race as Darden Rice continues to drop

by The 100 Companies

Former Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch has grown his lead in the St. Petersburg Mayor’s race to nearly six percentage points, with nearly 31% support. St. Pete City Council member Robert Blackmon trails with just over 25% support.

The St. Pete Polls survey puts both men in position to secure a spot in the top-two General Election Nov. 2, if the results translate to the Aug. 24 Primary.

But it’s a backslide for City Council member Darden Rice, who, as a once frontrunner for the seat, dropped to just 16% support in the most recent poll, from 17% in July.
