(ORLANDO, FL) Today, the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) announced it will be hosting the first major Republican gubernatorial candidate forum on Saturday evening, May 5, 2018, during its 13th Annual Policy Awards Dinner at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida. The forum will be moderated by Fox News political analyst Frank Luntz and the theme of the event will be “Together for Florida.” Luntz is known nationwide for moderating presidential debates.
John Stemberger, President of the Florida Family Policy Council who is sponsoring the event, made the following statement:
“We are very pleased to make this announcement and to have Frank Luntz moderate the forum. Frank’s experience in interviewing presidential candidates makes him the perfect person for this event. His skill in drawing out candidates and helping voters understand what’s important and what values they hold is unparalleled. Republicans have a very strong and impressive bench of candidates in the race for Florida’s next governor, which makes choosing the best candidate even more challenging. This forum will help educate primary voters to crystallize this important decision.”
The officially announced candidates for governor, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Congressman Ron DeSantis, have confirmed for this event and have agreed to participate in the forum. All other major GOP candidates who join the race will be immediately extended an invitation to participate. Tickets for the event can be purchased Friday, April 6 online after 12pm EST at www.FLfamily.org.
