With Thanksgiving and the Christmas season upon us, as well as the new year growing near, politicians contemplating a run for office in 2018 are ramping up their campaign rhetoric in hopes to trigger just enough momentum get them over the year-end hump.
While there are already quite a few candidates that have already officially announced their candidacies, other prominent politicos who are expected to announce their candidacies but cannot, for whatever reason, are using their political committees to do their bidding for them.
One such group is Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran’s Conservative-leaning Watchdog PAC, which assumingly was launched to push the Speaker’s political agenda and potential gubernatorial candidacy in the months leading up to, and through the upcoming 2018 legislative session.
“Less talk, more action. Strong Conservative Leadership.”-Watchdog PAC
The committee is currently emailing Floridians the Corcoran’s media moves throughout the state, outlining key leglislative points and measures he is either supporting, opposing, or considering.
Just this past week, one of the media points Watchdog PAC outlined was the House Ways & Means Committee vote that supports “the proposal (PCB WMC 18-01) which would ask voters in November 2018 to pass a constitutional amendment that would require approval from two-thirds “supermajorities” of the House and Senate to raise taxes and fees in the future.”
As the day grows near for Corcoran to decide if he is going to officially run for governor of Florida nears, expect the Watchdog to increase its visibility and possibly begin to criticize the Speakers potential Republican gubernatorial opponents.
