BARTOW – Adam Putnam formally announced he is running for governor Wednesday, May 10, in his hometown.

He made his declaration before his hometown crowd in Bartow framed by a huge flag of the state of Florida that hung from the portico of the Polk County History Center, which was the former Polk County Courthouse; and surrounded by hundreds of supporters and well-wishers, among them numerous elected officials, as well as those local representatives who represent Polk County.
