Fleming Island Republican Sen. Rob Bradley saw his political committee raise more money in November than in any other single month.
And in December, Bradley’s Working for Florida’s Families exceeded that sum, setting an internal record level of fundraising for the second straight month.
The committee hauled in $173,000, with significant buy-in from U.S. Sugar, Wal-Mart, Florida Blue, Associated Industries of Florida and the associated Florida Prosperity Fund.
All told, the committee has over $720,000 on hand.
Bradley became Senate Appropriations Chair after the removal of now-resigned Sen. Jack Latvala, his predecessor in the role.
Northeast Florida legislators expect that he will be in a position to ensure that the oft-neglected region gets its fair share in the budget process — one that Bradley is optimistic will go smoothly.
