No surprise here…

The next three Speakers of the Florida House — Will Weatherford, Chris Dorworth and Richard Corcoran — all posted healthy fundraising reports for the first quarter of 2012.

Will Weatherford raised $24,650 to bring his overall total to $421,800.

Chris Dorworth raised $30,900 to bring his overall total to just over $250,000.

Richard Corcoran raised $25,275 to bring his overall total to $201.062.

That’s nearly $900,000 for campaigns that may not even face token opposition, much less serious Democratic opponents.

It’s good to be king! Or the King Designates.
