Get your checkbooks ready, because prior to Thursday’s special session of the Florida Legislature, called to address court-mandated redistricting, state GOP leaders will host a trio of fundraisers in support of Republican candidates.

Incoming House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and Reps. Richard Corcoran and Jose Oliva are hosting three separate fundraising receptions on Wednesday, each beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the Governor’s Club on 202 South Adams Street Tallahassee.

Blaise Ingoglia will be fundraising at the Governor’s Club Board Room for his House District 35 campaign. Ingoglia, a vice chair of the RPOF, is facing Democrat Rose Rocco in the race to succeed term-limited Rep. Rob Schenck for the seat covering much of Hernando County. Outgoing House Speaker Will Weatherford will also be in attendance.

In the Governor’s Club Library Room, incumbent Rep. Carlos Trujillo has a reception for his House District 105 race. Trujill faces Democrat Carlos Pereira for the district covering parts of Broward, Collier and Miami-Dade counties.

At the same time, Rep. Keith Perry will be fundraising for his Gainesville area House District 21 re-election effort, taking place at the Governor’s Club Capital Room. Perry faces Democrat Jon Uman for the district covering Dixie, Gilchrist and Alachua Counties.
