Chick-fil-A and ping pong promised at fundraiser for Joe Negron on Tuesday

in Uncategorized by

Just in case your schedule is tight on Tuesday night and you’re wondering which political fundraiser to attend, your best bet may the one planned for Senator Joe Negron.

Sure, sure, Senate President Don Gaetz is hosting the event, as is Senate President Designate Andy Gardiner, so the prospect of them showing up is a draw.  

And the reception will be held at the office of the Florida Realtors, which is certainly a nice change of pace from the Governor’s Club.

But neither the hosts, nor the location are the best reasons to stop by Sen. Negron’s fundraiser. No, the best reasons to attend is the promises of … 

Chick-fil-A and ping pong. Ping pong and Chick-fil-A.

Hell yes!

On the invite for the “First Annual Ping Pong and Chick-fil-A Reception” (Please, Lord, let there be a Second Annual one), the sponsors write, “We are setting up the ping pong tables and bringing in all your favorites from Chick-fil-A! Come join us for a friendly game and some great eats!!”

I’m not sure what the Florida Realtors consider the favorites from Chick-fil-A, but let’s hope they include Spicy Chicken Sandwiches!

Too bad I won’t be in Tallahassee on Tuesday for this one. Chicken fingers, Joe Negron and ping pong … what more does a political aficionado need?
