Excerpt: Three months since he announced for U.S. Senate, and $10 million in TV advertising later, Floridians still don’t know much about who is funding Gov. Rick Scott’s free-swinging campaign.
Scott’s first campaign finance report won’t be made public until July 15 — deep into his bid to unseat three-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, whom the governor in a flood of TV ads has cast as a political relic and symbol of entrenched Washington.
Hot Take: Ok... And the point is? This was the lead story on the Post yesterday. And just curious, would you view his campaign any differently based on the funding source? And the public disclosure date of July 15th - isn't really as "deep" as it seems given that it's still a month and a half from the primary election let along the start of the general election cycle.

The master plan for Donald Trump to become the first Russian pawn president. That was all in the unauthorized version of the Art of The Oligarch.
