Sunburn – The morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics.
By Peter Schorsch, Phil Ammann, Mitch Perry and Jim Rosica.
Let’s begin this morning with a major announcement from one of Florida’s top political consulting firms.
Enwright Consulting Group is changing its name to Enwright Rimes Consulting, to better reflect the longtime business relationship of Randy Enwright and Jim Rimes.
A sister company that provides political services—EM Campaigns, in business since 2003—also is switching names to Election Management Solutions. Clay Barker is joining the firm as Project Manager and Consultant.
And they’re launching a brand new company called Supernova Digital Communications, a full service digital shop that can design digital ad campaigns, manage social media, start email marketing and build websites. Zach Monahan has come on board to manage it.
Enwright Rimes Consulting will continue to provide government relations, as well as grassroots, political, digital and telemarketing services. They’ve long served AT&T, the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform and No Casinos. More recently, they’ve been advising the group behind Marsy’s Law for Florida, which aims to create a crime victims’ bill of rights in the state.
The political shop now known as Election Management Solutions won some big races in the last primary, including Jeff Brandes and Kathleen Passidomo, and were part of the teams that helped Jeb Bush become governor and his brother George W. Bush become president. Supernova is taking off, counting now-Congressman Gaetz, state Rep. Dane Eagle, and state Sen. Dana Young as clients, boosting their respective online followings.
