Adam Putnam slates ‘meet and greet’ for Jax Beach

Adam Putnam zika traps

It’s an illustration of the old saying: if you’re hunting, you go where the ducks are.

When scooping up GOP votes in Duval County, there’s almost no better place to go than the Jacksonville Beaches, as one prominent Gubernatorial candidate shows.

On May 17, Adam Putnam will have a “meet and greet” event in Jacksonville Beach, at Angie’s Subs (1436 Beach Blvd.) — a restaurant owned by 2016 Congressional candidate Ed Malin, who ran a scrappy, spirited, populist campaign.

Putnam will “discuss his vision for Florida’s future and how he’ll always put Florida first” at the event, which has a 6:00 p.m. start time.

Putnam, the frontrunner by most reckonings for the GOP nomination in the 2018 Gubernatorial race, has a massive advantage over other potential candidates, in that he’s a known statewide quantity and appeals to a broad cross-section of the base.

As well, Putnam has formidable financial backingas his political committee already has well over $7M on hand.
