Rob Bradley political committee gives to Janet Adkins’ current opponent

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.
