Eight visits to a North Florida Busy Bee, 2 “shotgun shootouts,” and downing 12 cortaditos in Miami are among the highlights of Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam’s first 100 days on the campaign trail, according to a press release issued by his campaign staff.
Putnam, a Republican, jumped into the race for governor in May.
Since then, he’s been a busy bee, according to the numbers in the at-times tongue-in-cheek release, which include:
- 12 “Up & Adam” Breakfasts
- 11 County Republican functions
- 2 Shotgun Shootouts
- 8 stops to the Busy Bee, where I-10 meets I-75
- 12 cortaditos downed by Adam in Miami
- 1 oil change for Adam’s white pickup truck
- 1 A/C repair visit to the Bartow headquarters
- 100 glasses of Florida orange juice consumed by Adam
- 343 cans of Coke Zero consumed by staff at Bartow headquarters
- 3,044 popsicles distributed to young Floridians at parades
- 1,700 volunteers signed up
- 1 school field trip, 1 fifth grade graduation, 1 school play, 1 high school awards ceremony and 4 summer reading lists accomplished in the Putnam family
Putnam’s had the field to himself until recently — state Sen. Jack Latvala, a Republican from Clearwater, rolled out his campaign for governor with a three-city flyaround that kicked off in Hialeah on Wednesday.
No word yet on how many cortaditos Latvala consumed down South.
