Republican State Representative Holly Raschein and Jesse Panuccio, Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, are two of nine Floridians included on the second annual “Maverick PAC Future 40″ list.

“Maverick PAC’s mission is to engage the next generation of leaders in business and politics,” said Maverick PAC National Chair Jay Zeidman. “The Future 40 is our opportunity to recognize individuals who have demonstrated that they are that next wave of leadership in the public and private sector.”

Floridians named on the 2014 Future 40 list include Panuccio, Gov. Rick Scott’s point man for economic affairs; Raschein, who represents Key Largo in House District 120; and Tampa’s man-about-town, Mike Griffin.

Also on the list are Florida Deputy Director of Federal Affairs Elizabeth Rojas Levi; Berny Jacques, who serves as assistant state attorney in Pinellas-Pasco; Kristin Seay, Corporate Communications Manager at CSX; Republican Future Majority Caucus board member Neri Martinez; attorney Chelsi Henry; and Alex Garcia, Republican National Committee’s Florida Director of Hispanic Initiatives.

Award recipients will be recognized at the Maverick PAC Annual Conference, held in Washington D.C September 19-21. The event will feature Carly Fiorina, Ed Gillespie, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, as well as entrepreneur Erik Prince and RNC Chair Reince Preibus among others.

Founded in 2005, the Republican-leaning Maverick Political Action Committee now has 20 chapters across the country.
