More on the Huck Watch beat: Florida's SaintPetersBlog flags new polling that shows Mike Huckabee an early favorite for the 2018 Florida governor's race: 

As for the Republicans, this is the real shocker: Mike Huckabee, yes that Mike Huckabee, is the early frontrunner for the 2018 nom. As Florida Politics first reported last week, there is talk within Panhandle political circles that Huckabee may be interested in running in two years. These numbers will do nothing to slow that speculation. Coming in second on the GOP’s wish list is Pam Bondi. Surprisingly, Adam Putnam is in third place, barely polling ahead of Jeff Atwater and Will Weatherford.
The poll found that 37 percent of likely Republican primary voters said they would vote for Huckabee if he runs. Huckabee moved in to a $3 million beachfront mansion near Destin in 2011.

    The federal criminal information released as part of former lobbyist Rusty Cranford's June 7 guilty plea on bribery charges describes a Person 9 who worked for the nonprofit healthcare provider Preferred Family Healthcare and was associated with Cranford. The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
