In November, Caldwell’s campaign for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture raised $87,970, while Friends of Matt Caldwell, a Political Committee supporting his bid, brought in $52,600. After tallying another strong month of fundraising, the campaign and Political Committee have now raised more than $1.5 million.
Representative Caldwell said, “It is a blessing to see support continue to grow and momentum build as we engage with Floridians across the Sunshine State. As we share our conservative message and build our grassroots campaign, it is clear that Floridians want a principled conservative that can lead in Tallahassee on day one.”
The Commissioner of Agriculture serves as a member of the Florida Cabinet and is critical to the foundation of Florida’s economy. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services helps the agricultural industry with its daily challenges, promotes Florida’s agricultural commodities, manages state forests, safeguards consumers, implements the school lunch program, and oversees the concealed-weapon license system.
The campaign recently announced the endorsements of Republican House members from the Panhandle, Northeast Florida, Central Florida, Southwest Florida, and South Florida delegations. This is in addition to endorsements from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida, U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, former candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture Paul Paulson, and a number of county constitutional officers.
The campaign continues to travel across the Sunshine State as a part of Caldwell’s statewide #2LaneTravels Work Days Tour that highlights and showcases industries overseen as Commissioner of Agriculture.
