Adam Putnam lands a nice endorsement as rivals circle

Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida, representing more than 2,600 companies across the state, is not waiting for the likes of Ron DeSantis, Jack Latvala, and Richard Corcoran to decide on mounting campaigns for governor. ABC of Florida announced its endorsement Adam Putnam for governor tonight at its state convention in Marco Island.

“There’s no question that Adam Putnam is the right choice for Governor of Florida. His conservative values and free market approach will ensure that every individual and every business has the opportunity to compete on a level playing field,” said Mary Tappouni, President of Breaking Ground Contracting and State Chair of ABC of Florida.
 
“Adam Putnam knows what it means to run a small business. He will fight for the Floridians who are sick and tired of government getting in the way of prosperity. And he’ll work to ensure we have a well-trained workforce that can support our growing economy.  As the largest single provider of Apprenticeship Training in the state, acknowledging our skilled worker shortage is of critical importance to our association.”
