Joe Negron political committee nearly tapped out

As he prepares to leave office in November, a political committee that has played a key role for Senate President Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican, appears to be winding down.

The Treasure Coast Alliance, which has raised nearly $4.86 million since being formed in 2013, had $5,106 in cash on hand as of Aug. 31, according to a newly filed finance report. That came after the Treasure Coast Alliance sent $116,000 to two other political committees — Taxpayers in Action and the First Amendment Fund — on Aug. 27.

The Treasure Coast Alliance also had not received any contributions since January.

Negron announced this year that he will leave the Senate when his term as president ends in November. Negron could have stayed in the Senate until 2020, when he would have faced term limits.
