Florida Senate Republicans raising money Wednesday in Big Apple

Senate Republicans are racking up frequent flier miles this summer.

The Florida Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee is holding a fundraiser in New York City on Wednesday. The event includes a VIP reception at the The London NYC, a luxury hotel in the heart of New York City, and a private dinner at A Voce, a swank restaurant in Columbus Circle.

Senate President Designate Joe Negron, the committee’s chairman, is listed  as the headliner. He’s expected to be joined by Sens. Lizbeth Benacquisto, Anitere Flores, Bill Galvano, Jack Latvala, Rob Bradley and Wilton Simpson.

The committee has spent the summer raising cash to keep Republicans in the majority, and their efforts have taken them beyond Florida’s borders. Last month, the Negron-led fundraising committee held a two-day fundraiser at Pebble Beach golf club in California.

California was a popular spot for Florida politicos last month. Innovate Florida, the fundraising committee backing Galvano, held a fundraiser in Napa Valley just a few days later.
