Adam Putnam hosts BBQ for supporters in May
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, a Republican most expected to run for governor in 2018, is inviting his supporters to a BBQ in his hometown, just five days after the Legislature is expected to wrap up its annual spring session.
"We are having our Florida Grown Hometown BBQ on Wednesday, May 10th, and I wanted to make sure you got an invitation," Putnam said in a email blast sent to supporters.
Florida Grown is the name of a political committee Putnam opened in 2015 that has raised more than $10 million as of March 31, according to the Florida Division of Elections.
The event is in Bartow in Polk County at Old Polk County Courthouse.
