Latvala, Republican Senators chip in for Dem commission primary in Palm Beach County

by George Bennett | November 18th, 2013


The impressive $28,654 that Democratic Palm Beach County commission candidate Melissa McKinlay raised in her first month of campaigning includes a combined $4,000 from state Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, and five of Latvala’s current or former Republican Senate colleagues.


Latvala gave McKinlay $1,500 through two businesses and a political committee. Other Republicans who gave McKinlay $500 through committees or businesses were former Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff of Fort Lauderdale and current Sens. Miguel Diaz De La Portilla of Miami, Nancy Detert of Venice, Denise Grimsley of Sebastian and Greg Evers of Okaloosa County.

The Senators are all considered supporters of Latvala’s 2016 bid for the Senate presidency. Latvala couldn’t be reached for comment last week on why he and his network are interested in a local Democratic race in Palm Beach County. But McKinlay-backing Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Atlantis, said the connection doesn’t surprise him. McKinlay is an aide to the county legislative delegation and Clemens said he and Latvala have met with McKinlay to discuss Palm Beach County issues.
