The panel, which reviews the state’s constitution every two decades, is scheduled to convene 30 days before the beginning of the Legislature’s 2017 regular session on March 7. As […]

Tuesday’s Congressional primary election results suggest that north Florida is about to get redshifted. State Rep. Matt Gaetz trounced six opponents for the GOP nomination for the 1st Congressional District. As of 9 p.m., urological surgeon Neal Dunn seemed to eke out a win against state government lawyer Mary Thomas for the Republican nameplate in the 2nd Congressional District. “Congratulations to […]

Candidate Mary Thomas was the target and beneficiary of late injections of political action committee money into Florida’s 2nd Congressional District race. The “North Florida Neighbors” super PAC dropped $3,540 into telephone calls intended to boost Neal Dunn, the Panama City urological surgeon fighting Thomas in the GOP primary.

As the clock ticks down to Tuesday’s primary election, a super PAC backing Matt Gaetz in Florida’s 1st Congressional District has made another media buy to support his candidacy. Campaign finance records show that “North Florida Neighbors” paid Dallas’ Scott Howell & Co. advertising firm a little more than $24,000 last Thursday. The group recently financed a pro-Gaetz spot burnishing his conservative bona fides on veterans’ advocacy and anti-terrorism. The deeply conservative 1st District […]

Mary Thomas has secured another conservative woman’s backing in her bid for the Republican nomination in Florida’s 2nd Congressional District. The endorsement came from U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican associated with the tea party movement. “The U.S. House needs more conservative women, more moms, and more energized Christians like Mary,” Blackburn said. “I know firsthand […]

Neal Dunn is getting by with a lot of help from his friends — and himself. Dunn, one of three GOP candidates for the 2nd Congressional District in north Florida, has recently received campaign contributions from medical-associated political organizations. No surprise: He’s a Panama City urological surgeon. He also lent his own campaign $100,000 earlier this […]

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has endorsed Mary Thomas, Republican candidate for Florida’s 2nd Congressional District. The campaign announced the endorsement Thursday. “In this critical open-seat race, Mary is the only candidate who stands for less government, lower taxes, and more liberty,” said Paul, a libertarian Republican who dropped out of the race for president […]
