His campaign announced today that he has a leadership team to help him win the poll. Florida’s speaker, Republican Dean Cannon, will chair the committee. Other members of the committee include John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council; Pam Olsen, president of the Florida Prayer Network; Bill Bunting, a second amendment activist; Lew Oliver, an activist in Florida’s Orange County; A.K. Desai, CEO of Universal Health Care Group, Inc.; state senator Don Gaetz; state representatives Rachel Burgin and Clay Ingram; Broward County commissioner Chip Lamarca; Miami-Dade County commissioner Esteban Bovo; and Orange County property appraiser Bill Donegan.
