Adam Putnam holding Sun City Center rally Saturday

Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam is heading to Hillsborough tomorrow for a campaign rally in Sun City Center.

The event, hosted by the Sun City Republican Club, will be held at the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce, 1651 Sun City Center Plaza. Doors open at 2:00 pm and the rally is scheduled to get underway at 2:30 pm.

Putnam’s campaign said supporters who make their way to the south Hillsborough town can expect to meet Putnam and hear about his “Florida First vision for our state.”

The event is free to attend, though registration is required. Those looking to attend can take care of that ahead of time by heading to the rally’s Eventbrite page, though registration will also be available on site.

Putnam, currently in his second term as Agriculture Commissioner, was the first major Republican to enter the race to replace term limited Gov. Rick Scott. He faces U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, who is holding a pair of rallies in Northwest Florida Saturday, in the primary race.

At the end of April, Putnam held a fourfold lead in total fundraising and had about $19 million banked compared to $7 million on hand for DeSantis, who has since reported $3 million raised in May including $1.1 million in transfers from his now defunct re-election bid in Florida’s 6th Congressional District.

The primary election is Aug. 28.
