Richard Corcoran committee reports more than $1.4M in bank
A political committee tied to House Speaker Richard Corcoran, a Land O’ Lakes Republican, spent nearly $200,000 in June — but still had more than $1.4 million in the bank, according to a newly filed finance report.
Corcoran raised $6.9 million for the committee, known as Watchdog PAC, in 2017 and early 2018 as he considered a possible run for governor. But Corcoran announced this spring that he would not run for governor and stopped raising money for the committee.
From June 1 through June 29, the committee spent $196,540, according to the report, with the largest single expenditure a $50,000 contribution to the Republican Party of Florida. The committee also paid tens of thousands of dollars to consultants.
As of June 29, the committee had about $1.44 million on hand.
