Putnam sets fundraising record in ag race

Agriculture Commissioner candidate Adam Putnam is the first statewide candidate to show his cards after the campaign finance quarter ended Friday. The Republican campaign announced he raised $205,000 in the second quarter, bring his total haul to $1.6 million since he entered the race in February. It's the most ever raised by an agriculture commissioner candidate, according to his campaign. He reported $1.3 million cash on hand from 5,545 contributors -- about 95 percent from Florida.

"I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of financial support our campaign has received and I am even more excited at the ever expanding grassroots network our campaign has built,” said Putnam, a Central Florida congressman.

No Thanks Putnam

Putnam is a Good Ole Boy who has a terrible voting record in Congress, scores terribly on Environmental Issues, and supports Off Shore Oil Drilling. Putnam led efforts to broker a deal on oil drilling in 2006 off Florida's coast.
There is no way this Republican will properly Represent the interests of Floridians as the head of Consumer Services the other part of this Position that is often underrepresented and under-served for the People of Florida.
Scott Maddox is a much better candidate for our State.
