“Greg God­dard, the former Flor­ida fin­ance dir­ect­or at Hil­lary for Amer­ica, has been named fin­ance dir­ect­or for” Sen. Bill Nel­son (D).

“God­dard served as the Flor­ida fin­ance dir­ect­or for” Rep. Charlie Crist’s (D) “2014 gubernat­ori­al bid. God­dard also served as the deputy fin­ance dir­ect­or for the Flor­ida Demo­crat­ic Party and spent sev­en months as the fin­ance dir­ect­or for Jack­son­ville May­or Alv­in Brown (D).” In ad­di­tion, God­dard worked as Nel­son’s “North Flor­ida fin­ance dir­ect­or from April 2011 un­til Decem­ber 2012.” (Flor­ida Polit­ics)

MONEY MAT­TERS. The polit­ic­al com­mit­tee of Gov. Rick Scott (R), a pos­sible chal­lenger to Nel­son, “raised more than $2.9 mil­lion in 2016. And that sum will likely rise, since the most re­cent cam­paign fin­ance data does not in­clude money raised in Decem­ber.” The com­mit­tee, called Let’s Get to Work, “spent more than $2.5 mil­lion this year, in­clud­ing $227,666 for polit­ic­al con­sult­ing and $76,264 on sur­veys and re­search.” (Saint­Peters­B­log)
