I just got off the telephone with General Counsel for the Florida Secretary of State, Gary Holland. Mr. Holland understands the Federal Election Commission is the proper place to file as a candidate for federal elections. Conversely, why some of the rookie congresssional candidates do not know this, is a mystery.
The local media when reporting filed candidates for federal office need to do their due diligence and know and understand a candidate for federal office is required to be filed as a candidate with the Federal Election Commission.
Will someone tell the media here in SW Florida that; and some of these rookie candidates. If a candidate for federal office does not know this, what makes one think they are qualified to be elected to be your next and better United States Congressman in the 14th District.
