 Last Termers (open seats in 2020 for Hillsborough/Pinellas)

TBT: McCabe, Dillinger say they’ll run in 2016, then they’re done

Pinellas State Attorney, Bernie McCabe, and Public Defender, Robert Dillinger, were re-elected without challenge.  Both have stated that they will not run in 2020.  Dillinger stated that this will be his last term because it will be “time for new blood” next election cycle.  Dillinger told Tampa Bay Times that “his top priority in a sixth term will be to push for legislation changing the way the state handles juveniles taken into custody for psychiatric evaluation under the Baker Act.”  Florida You Judge has contacted Mr. Dillinger to inquire about whether he was present in Tallahassee during this past legislative session and if so what were his efforts/focus.  FYJ has not received any response.  Should Mr. Dillinger respond, FYJ will update this post.  Hillsborough State Attorney, Mark Ober is being challenged by virtual political unknown, Andrew Warren.  Ober says if he wins, this will be his last term.
