The sordid campaign finance scandal involving convicted congressional candidate Justin Lamar Sternad and U.S. Rep. David Rivera has taken a major twist.
Little more than a year before the 2014 elections, the Republican Party of Florida and its leaders are showing their financial muscle.
The investigation surrounding former U.S. Representative David Rivera’s alleged ties to an illegally funded congressional campaign continues to tighten up with additional witnesses now helping federal agents, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.
The 2012 presidential election will go down as the first billion dollar campaign in American history, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the numbers that will define the 2012 election.
The expected billion-dollar presidential election has nearly come to fruition already, but the fundraising totals that have been announced to this point don’t tell the complete story of the 2012 race.
When Florida Republicans cast their vote on January 31; it may be too late to make a difference in the eventual nomination. But, any candidate who chooses to overlook the Sunshine State will do so at their own peril.
