Thanks. So who is the Florida GLBT PAC and how does do they differ from Equality Florida?

My understanding of the GLBT PAC is that it is the Political Action Committee of the Florida GLBT Caucus. They come up with recommendations based on studies of candidates records and from questionaires the candidates fill out.

As for how they differ from Equality Florida, they are simply another group that helps sift through political issues for the LGBT community. Just more information for voters. :)
