Commissioner of Agriculture and Republican Gubernatorial Candidate, Adam Putnam, has announced a rally to be held in Seminole County later this month. His first major public event in the greater Orlando area as a candidate for Governor, in one of the most conservative counties in the state.
The rally will be held at the Eastmonte Civic Center in Altamonte Spring on May 16th at 1:30pm. The venue is also the same place where the Seminole County Republican Party holds their regular meetings. The GOP holds all but one major elected office in the county.
Putnam officially filed earlier this week. His message to supporters reads..
“As you might have heard, I’m planning to make a big announcement pretty soon. Right after that we’re hopping on a bus and doing one of my favorite things — spending time with folks across the great state of Florida.”
The Agriculture Commissioner is the first major Republican candidate to jump into the contest to succeed in Rick Scott and has been the leader in early hypothetical primary polling.
