Florida shapes up as one of the most important Republican presidential primary states in the nation. And Texas Gov. Rick Perry isn’t wasting any time in getting his campaign started there, Politico reports.
 
Money represents one focus. “You will see quite a number of top fundraisers come on board for Perry. I’ve talked to many of my Republican friends in Florida, and there is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for Perry,” St. Petersburg doctor Akshay Desai, a top GOP fundraiser and Perry supporter, told Politico. “Some of the people who signed up with other candidates, I think you will see moving to Perry.”
 
Perry campaign officials are consulting with top Republican strategists in the state, including George W. Bush’s Florida 2004 campaign head Brett Doster and the Tallahassee trio of Randy Enwright, Jim Rimes, and Rich Heffley.
