The committee brought in $155,000 in April, wit much of that money coming from other committees.
The “Free Speech PAC” and “Citizens First,” both of “5730 Corporate Way Suite 214” in West Palm Beach ponied up $40,000 each.
“Florida Jobs Alliance” and “Conservative Choice,” each of which share an address with Sunshine State Conservatives, were in for another $25,000.
These committees all appear to be passthrough committees, with money coming from other committees, and so on.
Also interesting: the contributions, dated Apr. 27, represent a break from previous contribution trends for the committee, which predominately (though not exclusively) has been from corporate and industry PACs.
The committee doled out $10,050 in April, including contributions to campaigns of Sen. Kelli Stargel, Rep. Joe Gruters, and a secondary Hutson committee, “First Coast Business Foundation.”
Bigger spending could be found in March for the committee, which gave $50,000 to the FRSCC, to help with fundraising efforts. Donations were also made to the campaigns of Sens. Dana Young, Dennis Baxley, Kathleen Passidomo, George Gainer, and Doug Broxson.
As the race for eventual Senate leadership continues to unfold, expect more interesting committee transfers … and, if April receipts for this committee are an indication, they will at least sometimes be hard to track.
