in Uncategorized by

Armando Gutierrez Jr. and Slater Bayliss today announced the launch of Maverick PAC (MAVPAC) Florida, which they will co-chair. MAVPAC Florida is a Federal political action committee comprised of next-generation Republicans, generally under the age of 45. MAVPAC members commit their time, talents, and money to promote conservative principles of personal and fiscal responsibility in public service. Based in Texas, the national MAVPAC is co-chaired by George P. Bush and Jay S. Zeidman.

“I’m excited to lead such a successful effort into Florida. MAVPAC Florida will get young professional conservatives involved in the most important issues effecting the future of our state and our nation,” said Gutierrez.

“We’re entering the most important election cycle in a generation, and MAVPAC Florida will give a voice to the next generation of leaders who support candidates dedicated to growing our economy, keeping our nation safe, and upholding conservative values,” said Bayliss.

“Nobody is more qualified to ensure MAVPAC Florida is a success than Armando Gutierrez Jr. and Slater Bayliss. They have lived and breathed Florida politics for years, and have the experience and knowledge to get young people across the state involved in supporting the conservative leaders America needs,” said national Co-Chair George P. Bush.

MAVPAC Florida’s main purposes are:

• To build a network of like-minded young professionals across the state of Florida;

• To promote the interests of the Republican Party in Florida and nationally;

• To support the election of Republican candidates (incumbents and new candidates) to Florida State offices and National offices representing the State of Florida and to support the election of Republican candidates from outside Florida to National elected office;

• To advocate the involvement of members in federal and state governments.

MAVPAC Florida held its first event earlier this year in a joint program with SunPac. With statewide leadership now in place, MAVPAC is looking forward to making an impact across the state.
