John Morgan to Hold Charlie Crist Fundraiser this Thursday

Super-Attorney John Morgan, who is arguably the most powerful man in the city will begin fundraising for his friend and Republican Governor turned Democrat Charlie Crist, this Thursday in Downtown Orlando.

We all know Morgan from his advertising presence on TV, Radio, and Billboards promoting his family fueled law firm Morgan & Morgan but what many casual voters might not know is that Morgan has hosted fundraisers for Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Harry Reid. He single-handedly put the Medicinal Marijuana campaign on his shoulders earlier this year and that will go before voters later this year.

There isn’t a hosting committee listed but you can assume there will be a lot of checks being written. And Crist will need every one of them. His opponent, incumbent Governor Rick Scott has said he will spend 100 million dollars to defeat his controversial challenger this November.

You can read the details of the event on the graphic below.

CANCELED: Vice-President Biden to speak at UCF September 5th

UPDATE: Vice-President Joe Biden has postponed this visit. When a new date is announced, you can read about it here.

Vice-President Joe Biden will be visiting the University of Central Florida next week to push the President’s future plans for education.

With Foreign Policy and Immigration taking center stage in Washington recently, Education issues such as tuition increases and student loans have gotten lost in the media shuffle and the Biden will try to keep that train running.

This will be the first time the Vice-President has visited Central Florida since election season last year. He’s known for his brash and straight forward speaking style and supporters who attend his speech next week should expect more of the same.

When President Obama’s re-election campaign hit troubled waters last year, it was the often mocked Biden who stepped up (with former President Clinton) and gave big speeches at the Democratic National Convention and drew what many believe was a tie in his VP Debate with his policy heavy, GOP Counterpart Paul Ryan.

He’s considered to be the 2nd choice for many Democrats besides Hilary Clinton for the 2016 Presidential Race. If Clinton can’t go, it will be Biden that will move into the presumed frontrunner role heading into the primary.

Biden is also known for stopping into local businesses with no notice to speak with voters. You can expect more of that next week during his visit.
