Carlos Beruff's very Reagany day

It was a very Reagany day for Carlos Beruff on Wednesday night.

With just 11 days now until election day, Beruff, who is running for the U.S. Senate against Marco Rubio, was the guest of a Polk County group that is dedicated to the memory of the nation's 40th president. Beruff was a guest speaker at the Ronald Reagan Republican Club of Heritage Pines on the same day he picked up an endorsement from a group called the Ronald Reagan Republican Assemblies of Florida, Inc.

"You have met and proven to our organization our criteria of: pro-life, pro-family, and pro-Second Amendment values, and we hope you will continue to work for these principles we hold true as citizens of this great Republic," says a letter from Bill Norton, president of Ronald Reagan Republican Assemblies of Florida.

Beruff today heads for the Jacksonville area, where he'll be making his second stop in two weeks to the Republican-rich region. Beruff speaks to the River City Republican Club at 6 p.m. Duval County, which Rubio lost to Donald Trump during the Republican Presidential Primary in March, has the state's 6th highest number of registered Republican voters.
