A political committee associated with state Rep. Chris Latvala received $100,000 in March from another committee linked to his father, former Sen. Jack Latvala, according to newly filed finance reports.
The Suncoast Better Government Committee, which says on its website that it is associated with the younger Latvala, received the contribution March 19 from the Florida Leadership Committee.
Chris Latvala is running for re-election this year in Pinellas County’s House District 67.
As of March 31, he had about $28,000 in cash on hand in his campaign account, while the Suncoast Better Government Committee had about $127,000 on hand, the reports show.
The Florida Leadership Committee has long been linked to Jack Latvala, who announced his resignation from the Senate in December after an investigation of sexual-harassment allegations.
The committee had about $3.6 million on hand as of March 31.
