“The state Fraternal Order of Police lodge on Saturday threw its endorsement to” state Sen. Jack Latvala (R). “The FOP claims 22,000 members in 104 chapters across the state. Most work for city and county law enforcement agencies.”

“FOP President Robert Jenkins … called Latvala a ‘tireless advocate’ for law enforcement in the Legislature. He cited the lawmaker‘s support of police pay raises and opposition to changes to officers’ pension plans in the Florida Retirement System.” (Tampa Bay Times)

TIES THAT BIND. “The brief digital ad campaign attempting to brand … Latvala as ‘Liberal Latvala’ was put together by” Harris Media, which is “also doing work directly for” state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam (R). “The committee that paid for the ads — United Conservatives for Florida — is run by Mac Stevenson a longtime Putnam adviser.” (Politico)
