Many of you have utilized On 3 Public Relations’ comprehensive campaign finance reports since the first edition during the 2008 cycle. Thank you for the kind words, notes and tweets of encouragement and appreciation for our effort in putting these timely and accurate spreadsheets together for you, your organization, and your clients.
With November comes a new format, and more information, in our exclusive state reports. We have included not only the cumulative totals to date of all funds raised and spent by Florida state and legislative candidates, but also their totals for the most recent reporting period.
On 3 Public Relations presents Florida’s state and legislative campaign finance reports for everything raised and spent through October 31, 2013. The M10 information, covering activities between October 1 through October 31 was due to the Florida Division of Elections by midnight Tuesday, November 12, 2013.
Florida law now changes campaign finance reporting periods from quarterly and biweekly in previous cycles, to monthly and weekly (for statewide candidates) and to monthly and biweekly (for legislative candidates) for the remainder of the 2014 cycle. The new law, which went into effect November 1, 2013, also provides new dates for the state and federal qualifying period, and the primary election. Please go to www.DOS.STATE.FL.US for complete information.
