JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jeb! says Deb! is treading on his trade mark.
A lawyer for former Republican Gov. Jeb Bush has sent Deborah Gianoulis, a candidate for the Florida Senate, a letter demanding the Jacksonville Democrat cease using a red Deb! logo with white lettering.
Except for the first letter it's almost identical to Bush's Jeb! logo - U.S. Trade Mark Registration No. 2,826,942.
Gianoulis spokesman John Daigle said Wednesday that there's no longer anything to cease doing.
He said the campaign distributed a few Deb! lapel stickers in June and used it in a television ad that went off the air last month.
Gianoulis, a former TV anchor, is trying to unseat St. Augustine Sen. John Thrasher, also chairman of the Florida Republican Party.
