Florida For All is a left-of-center PAC that supports Democratic candidates and ballot measures within the state of Florida.

Leadership

Florida For All was founded by Carlos Odio, a DNC super delegate who also worked as the president of Win Florida Inc., a left-of-center 501(c)(4) voter mobilization group that works in collaboration with Florida for All. [1]

In April 2019, Raymond Paultre became the chairman of Florida for All. [2] Paultre had previously worked as Northeast Florida’s field director for the 2012 Barrack Obama presidential campaign, as a consultant for the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and as an adviser to Stephen Bittel’s successful campaign for chair of the Florida Democratic Party. [3]

Funding

In December 2017, The Civic Participation Action Fund (CPAF) awarded Florida For All a grant of $500,000 which made up nearly 100 percent of their funding for the year. [4]

The month before, Florida for All received the $500,000 grant from CPAF its total expenditures were less than $1,000, but after that the group received the grant from CPAF its expenditures reached $80,000 that same month. [5] Of those expenditures roughly $42,000 was paid to the Florida Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee for “polling”. [6]
