Florida state house candidate Rick Minor says he will not be bought off by big oil. During a press conference October 27th, minor announced his campaign will not accept contributions from individuals or companies tied to the lobbying effort to drill near Florida's coastline.
In addition, he says refund checks will be issued to any donar who've contributed to his campaign and are identified as having ties to pro-drilling organizations. Minor feels hundreds of miles of pristine beaches and unique wildlife habitats must be protected.
Rick Minor is a democratic candidate for state house district 9, which includes Leon and Jefferson Counties. He is running against incumbent democratic representative Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda.
