State Ag­ri­cul­ture Com­mis­sion­er Adam Put­nam’s (R) cam­paign an­nounced Wed­nes­day that it has raised $13.4 mil­lion to date for both his cam­paign and polit­ic­al com­mit­tee, with the help of a $2.1 mil­lion raised in May, and re­por­ted $10 mil­lion on hand. (Politico)

GREEN THUMBS DOWN. Tal­l­a­hassee May­or An­drew Gil­lum (D) “cri­ti­cized Pres­id­ent Don­ald Trump’s ex­pec­ted an­nounce­ment that he will with­draw the U.S. from the Par­is ac­cord, and said the pres­id­ent and [term-lim­ited] Gov. Rick Scott (R) had done more to ‘bury their heads in the sand’ on the cli­mate change is­sue.” He “also said” former Rep. Gwen Gra­ham (D) “will have to an­swer for her 2015 vote in Con­gress in sup­port of the Key­stone XL pipeline.” (Politico)

“Along with Scott,” state Speak­er Richard Corcor­an (R) and Put­nam “have a ‘cred­ib­il­ity prob­lem,’ Gil­lum said. ‘You can’t say that you care about ad­dress­ing these is­sues and then you spend your time mak­ing it worse, when they don’t show up in your budget pri­or­it­ies.’” (Flor­ida Polit­ics)
