STONE COLD TRUTH. Trump adviser Roger Stone “said a ‘mutual friend’ set up a meeting later during his visit to the state Capitol with” state House Speaker Richard Corcoran (R). “Both said they’d expressed interest in getting together.” Stone “was noncommittal about whether he’d get involved as a strategist in the governor’s race, but said he doesn’t currently have any expectations to be a part of anyone’s campaign.” (Miami Herald)

“The most aggressive House speaker in decades is mixing hard-right politics and modern messaging to reshape government, while fighting for the traction he needs if he makes a longshot bid for the Republican nomination for governor. Far more than most of his predecessors, Corcoran uses the levers of power as speaker to send direct appeals to Republican primary voters via the floor of the House, a state website, on TV and on social media.” (Miami Herald)
