The local finance chair for Jeb Bush’s ’98 campaign, Blosser is an ex-executive in H. Wayne Huizenga’s empire that has encompassed Blockbuster Video, AutoNation, National and Alamo car rentals and sports teams. Blosser led efforts to tap tax dollars for new Dolphins, Marlins and Panthers stadiums before leaving Huizenga for Poole & McKinley. This entangled the firm in a conflict of interest after new Marlins owner John Henry hired the firm to win tax dollars for yet another new stadium. Poole & McKinley resigned from the job after Henry decided to fund the $400 million new stadium through taxes on rental cars—which would take a bite out of the empire of Blosser’s old boss, Huizenga.
