Who is behind the well-financed political committee Floridians for a Fair Shake (FFFS)?
Republican agriculture commissioner candidate Matt Caldwell sure got my attention Friday when he told "hate group" Bullsugar.org what they could do with their "candidate questionnaire."

Florida Democratic Party officials wouldn't acknowledge a Rick Scott triumph if it body-slammed them off the ropes on UFC Fight Night.
By an 86-5 vote, the Senate passed the Minibus Appropriations bill, H.R. 5895 -- the Energy and Water, Legislative Branch and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act of 2019 -- at 6 p.m. Monday.
