Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam was the frontrunner to win the Republican primary race against Congressman Ron DeSantis. However, he’s had a recent slip in the polls after facing a minor controversy concerning concealed gun permits and after President Donald Trump formally endorsed Congressman DeSantis in a tweet. The President is even going to be campaigning on DeSantis’ behalf.
In turn, term-limited Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has endorsed Adam Putnam in his gubernatorial bid, and she’s now looking to tie the Agriculture Commissioner to the President in a new advertisement.
In the 30-second advertisement titled Pam Bondi Supports Adam Putnam, the Putnam campaign touts the Attorney General’s endorsement. She explains that she “fought hard to elect President Trump and I’m supporting Adam Putnam for Governor.”
She discusses that Putnam is the right person for the job because “Adam will stand with President Trump to get tough on illegal immigration, ban sanctuary cities and deport criminal illegal aliens.” And she also reminds Floridians that around 50 Florida sheriffs have endorsed Putnam for Florida Governor as well.
Pam Bondi campaigned with the President during the 2016 Presidential election, and President Donald Trump also donated to several of Bondi’s political efforts.
