Senate candidate George LeMieux has released a list of names of his “grass roots team,” backers in all 67 counties, including Terry Castro, Vicki Maddox and Tina Pike in Hillsborough.

In Pinellas, LeMieux named Tony DiMatteo and Nancy Riley, and in Pasco, he named Roger Whidden.

Pike is one of the three representatives of the county on the governing board of the state Republican Party. Maddox and Castro are both veteran local GOP activists.

DiMatteo was an early supporter of Marco Rubio against former Gov. Charlie Crist in the 2010 U.S. Senate primary.
