Jim Davis is leaving his Tampa congressional seat to seek the governorship, opening up that office for the first time in a decade. This political plum has attracted some big (and little) Democratic primary names: County Commissioner Kathy Castor, Scott Farrell, Al Fox, state Sen. Lesley "Les" Miller and Michael Steinberg. The five answer your questions at a debate that serves as a special edition of the Weekly Planet's Political Party. Moderated by Political Whore columnist Wayne Garcia, the candidates show why they want to represent one of the state's worst gerrymandered seats, stretching from Temple Terrace through Tampa to Bradenton and then back up to south St. Petersburg. Submit your candidate query via the Planet's website or the Blurbex.com blog. Wed., Aug. 23, 7—8:30 p.m., Palladium Theater, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg, free admission, 813-739-4805.
