Well, this didn’t take long. The first attack mailer in the special election for House District 2 has already surfaced. 

An Electioneering Communications Organization (ECO) – The Committee for a Better Florida – is targeting former Gulf Breeze Mayor Ed Gray and former Pensacola City Councilman Jack Nobles for being “Two Career Politicians” and part of the “Same Old Story.”

The Committee for a Better Florida is funded primarily by another ECO, the Freedom First Committee.

You can read the mailpiece for yourself below.

Nobles was paid $12,000 a year for his post.
