Florida State Rep. Tom Leek (R-FL) contributed $25,000 to the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), a move that bolsters support for Chairman Evan Power (R) in Republicans state-wide.

In recent years Leek gained notoriety by passing legislation on hot button issues in the state legislature.  Rep. Leek passed bills relating to emergency management and in banning “vaccine passports.” His biggest bill this year was HB 19, allows the state to import drugs from foreign nations at a lower cost as long as the pharmaceuticals are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved.

"The Republican Party of Florida continues to make incredible gains in stellar candidate recruitment," stated Leek. "Impressive voter registration numbers, and vital voter turnout programs, and it is my hope other candidate campaigns and political committees will consider doing the same this critical time."

Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida responded to the donation as a gesture of confidence in the work the Florida GOP has done in recent years.

"Thank you to the Florida House Appropriations Chairman, State Rep. Tom Leek, for his unwavering support of the RPOF and to the people of Florida under his leadership role in helping to craft an open and transparent $117 billion budget, meeting the needs of Floridians and planning for the future of our state."

The Florida GOP has done historically well in voter registration in recent years.  In 2021, Republicans surpassed Democrats among registered voters for the first time in history.  Now the registration gap favoring Republicans in Florida is nearing 900,000.
