Elections Matter: Victories are Great, but Success is Never Final
The Florida Chamber’s Political Operations develops LEADERSHIP in the political arena to address tough issues with real solutions. At the Florida Chamber, our political efforts are about preparation. We do not have a “wait-and-see” attitude concerning Florida politics. We continually track attitudes and trends in Florida with statewide and district polling. We are constantly recruiting, researching and vetting potential candidates for office. Elections are not an every other year process to us. Rather they are a 365/52 state of affairs.
Florida Chamber of Commerce Gets Results
Today’s political environment makes it necessary for the business community to band together and stand up for free enterprise. Ask anyone who followed the 2010 election and they will tell you the Florida Chamber Political Action Program means business. The Florida Chamber spent 15 times what other business groups spent. We invested more than $5.5 million dollars and won 80 of 84 elections in which we engaged.
The overarching lesson learned from the 2010 election is that Americans realize the correlation between jobs and a good economy and free enterprise. But it’s up to business to keep spreading the word.
To elect business-minded candidates who promote free enterprise, the Florida Chamber’s Political Action Program blends together all the necessary ingredients for success:
- Research and planning
- Strategies and tactics
- Recruiting and interview
- Voter education activities
