Pastor decides he backs Rick Baker after all
Judging from his comments to Gypsy Gallardo, it's been a rough week for Pastor Ron Gibson.
Gallardo reported last week that Gibson, despite being included in a list of 40 pastors backing Rick Baker, hadn't endorsed the former mayor in his bid to unseat Mayor Rick Kriseman.
The apparent flub was seized by Kriseman supporters as evidence that Baker was overstating his support in the black community. Kriseman himself criticized his opponent via Twitter on Aug. 5.
The mayor tweeted: "Our faith community and residents throughout our city deserve better than this." and linked to Gallardo's Aug. 5 report.
Thursday, Gallardo reported that Gibson, in fact, does back Baker. He told her that the past week he has been inundated with calls.
The primary is Aug. 29
