In a press release today, the Adkins campaign released the official endorsement of Brevard County Clerk of Courts Republican Scott Ellis to her candidacy.
This announcement comes on the heals of a series of bizarre attacks from Randy Fine on other elected Veteran Republicans in the district, to include retired Lieutenant Colonel and Melbourne City Councilman Tim Thomas, and both the Mayor, Kathy Meehan, and Vice Mayor Alfrey of Melbourne for not agreeing to have his campaign fireworks event.
Thomas responded to Fine’s attacks in his own Facebook post.
Over the last week, Fine has gone on a tirade of personal attacks against Dr. Adkins’ political consultant Robert Burns. He held a press conference for one of the attacks calling Burns a 6-state felon but offering no evidence to support his claims. After witnessing the event, none of the news stations that showed up chose to air the coverage. Several chose not to attend the event given the content of Fine’s past conferences.
