TALLAHASSEE - Former Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner James "Tim" Moore has joined a well-connected Republican lobbying firm that includes former House Speaker John Thrasher.

Southern Strategy Group announced Thursday that Moore is its newest partner. Other partners include Paul Bradshaw, husband of Sally Bradshaw, former chief of staff for Gov. Jeb Bush.

Others lobbying with the firm include David Rancourt, a former deputy chief of staff for Bush; Tom Herndon, former director of the State Board of Administration; and Chris Dudley, former staff director for former Lt. Gov. Frank Brogan.

Moore retired from FDLE July 31 after serving three consecutive governors. He was initially nominated for the job in 1988 by Gov. Bob Martinez and retained by Govs. Lawton Chiles and Bush.

Southern Strategy's announcement said Moore will serve as an advocate and consultant for clients involved in government policy and homeland security.
