First, we identified Tampa Bay’s Top 25 most powerful politicians. Then we named Florida’s 30 brightest politicos under 30-years old. Our next series promises to be the most interesting: Who are Florida’s best political consultants?
Some of them — Steve Schale, Rick Wilson — are household names, at least within households in Tallahassee. Others, such as Pat Bainter, wield enormous influence without showing up often in the headlines.
By analyzing campaign finance spending data, election results and several other metrics, as well as surveying dozens of operatives in the industry, we are compiling the definitive list of the best political consultants in the state.
This special series will be unveiled beginning September 2. In the meantime, your input is welcomed. Who belongs on this list? How should this list be compiled? Would you like to be part of the panel which determines who makes the list?
