Former John McCain staffer starts Tallahassee consulting firm



Buzz Buzz Jacobs, who helped run the McCain campaign in Florida, is staying put in Tallahassee. Jacobs has started a political consulting firm, Polisec, which promises to navigate the "intersection of politics and policy" with a specialty in homeland security.

"It's a beautiful city," Jacobs said, adding his wife attended Florida State. He said he launched the business about a month ago and was still building a client list.

"The estimates are that as much or more homeland security money is spent at the state and local level as the federal level," he said. "There's really not a lot of companies focused in that area."
