Thrasher-Perniciaro Race Goes Down to the Wire

Charles Perniciaro

State Senator John Thrasher is facing an unexpectedly tough fight for renomination today. He's being challenged by political newcomer Charles Perniciaro, a beaches dermatologist who has spent over $300,000 of his own money on the uphill campaign.

Thrasher and Perniciaro both have full days of campaigning ahead of them.

Thrasher will be voting in the morning with his wife at their precinct in St. Augustine. That will be followed by visits and sign waving at three polling places. The night will be capped off by a "victory party" at Dave and Busters on the Southside of Jacksonville.

The challenger, Perniciaro, early voted already and plans to dedicate his entire day to campaigning. While he'll only be hitting two voting locations, Perniciaro will be spending much longer amounts of time at each spot. Then he'll join his team for a "victory party" at the Casa Marina Hotel in Jacksonville Beach.
