It's Steve Madden vs. Gus Corbella in the Championship of TallyMadness


With more than 12,000 votes cast as part of TallyMadness — an online voting competition to determine Florida’s best lobbyist — the Championship Match is finally set.

Cinderella Man Steve Madden will face off against Gus Corbella in a battle of two Tallahassee favorites.

Just like college basketball’s March Madness, the Championship of TallyMadness could not have been better scripted. #16 seed Steve Madden, riding a wave of support from his colleagues in the Capital, has upset one opponent after another, while dark horse Gus Corbella defeated heavyweights Mac Stipanovich and Barney Bishop, among others, on his way to the Championship Match.

Voting ends at midnight on Thursday with a winner announced on Friday morning.
