The Nassau County School Superintendent race, in an ordinary year, wouldn’t be of larger state interest.
However, this year it is: termed-out State Rep. Janet Adkins is a candidate, opposing Kathy Burns in a campaign that has been acrimonious from the outset.
“Working for Florida’s Families,” the campaign committee associated with Sen. Rob Bradley, weighed in on this campaign.
The political committee put $1,000 into this race on July 5 … not for Bradley’s fellow Republican in Tallahassee, but to her opponent.
When asked why, Bradley said the following:
“I care deeply about the future of Nassau County schools. Two nephews of mine graduated from Fernandina Beach High and the third is a student in the system.”
He did not go into detail about why Burns would be a better choice than Adkins. But $1,000 from his political committee makes a clear statement.
Bradley’s committee has $372,000 cash-on-hand as of July 8, and its donations throughout the balance of the primary season are worth watching, as he faced no re-election opposition this year.
