"Looks like gator season will be open year-round!" — Former Senate candidate Rob Maness Dec. 17, announcing the formation of his new political action committee, Gator PAC. Maness described the PAC as "a vehicle to give liberty-minded citizens the teeth and the tools to join together to take our government back from the career politicians." Maness launched the PAC with Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and U.S. Sen. David Vitter. Breitbart News reported that Vitter will host the PAC's first major fundraiser in 2015. No word yet as to what office Maness might seek in next year's statewide elections.
