As the Florida Senate maps for 2012 are currently under Supreme Court review, and with many incumbents in both legislative bodies having not adjusted their originally-filed seat numbers for the summer and fall campaigns, we had to make a decision for our 1st quarter 2012 legislative campaign finance reports.
Rather than speculate, and rather than potentially add to the confusion, we are going to utilize the seat numbers that candidates have filed as of today with the Florida Division of Elections for this report.
The amounts raised and expended for the first quarter 2012 and cumulatively for the campaign-to-date are here, and the cash on hand numbers are as reported. What will change, later, in many of these races is the actual seat number the candidates are seeking. We know this is not optimum for our report, for the election matchups of candidate versus candidate in some seats are certainly not valid.
On 3 Public Relations will reissue this report after qualifying in June, assuming that the Supreme Court has given final direction on the Senate maps, and the election matchups will be clear. For today, our report will show the district numbers for the particular seats the candidates have currently filed.
Redistricting. Confusing. We’ll get it all sorted out soon.
