Carlos Beruff hires a Marco Rubio staffer as press secretary



U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Beruff has hired a Marco Rubio staffer to serve as press secretary.

Joanna Rodriguez had been serving as Rubio's Senate digital director and also has experience at Rubio’s Reclaim America PAC.

Next week Rodriguez will be in Florida to handle the press for Beruff, the Manatee County home builder and late entrant into the GOP primary who has already begun to advertise.

“This election, Floridians are looking for a senator who stands for conservative principles and will put America first when he gets to Washington,” Rodriguez tells the Buzz. “I know Carlos Beruff is the best man for the job and I'm excited to be heading back to my home state to help him spread his message to as many Floridians as possible.”
