Kurt Browning Heads Opposition PAC Against Amendments 5 and 6
When the Florida Supreme Court knocked Amendment 7 off the ballot, the folks behind the FairDistricts campaign (Amendments 5 and 6) may have figured they had a clear shot to victory Nov. 2.
But hold on.
On Friday, a political action committee called Protect Your Vote announced it will work to defeat the amendments that purport to "reform" how legislative and congressional districts are drawn. The anti-group is headed by former Secretary of State Kurt Browning.
No finance reports have been filed, but with less than eight weeks to Election Day, it's unclear how much headway Browning's group can make against FairDistricts, which raised more than $4.2 million since forming in 2006.
