As Florida voters weigh a list of proposed constitutional amendments, backers and opponents have poured money in recent weeks into battles over raising Florida’s minimum wage and revamping the primary-election system.

A political committee of the SEIU Florida labor union has spent at least $1.05 million since late September to support Florida For A Fair Wage PAC, which is spearheading a proposal that would gradually raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour, according to a state campaign-finance database. The union’s contributions are described as “in-kind” but include covering the costs of digital ads, video production, text messaging and staffing.
