Adam Putnam endorses Mike Haridopolos



Mike Haridopolos had already won the endorsement of CFO Jeff Atwater, and was so pleased with House Speaker Dean Cannon's endorsement that he announced it twice. Now Haridopolos is touting support of Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

"Commissioner Putnam is a member of the Florida Cabinet and was one of the most popular conservative candidates elected last year with 56% of the vote in Florida. Adam has served Florida as both a State Legislator and as a Congressman, serving in the highest elected leadership position any Floridian of either party has held in Washington," Putnam said in an email to his mailing list.
"Commissioner Putnam told me that he was endorsing me for US Senate because “Mike is a true leader who has proven he will take on the tough issues that face our nation and is the conservative who can win this race. Mike's conservative leadership has resulted in much needed reforms to government that will pave the way for the entrepreneurs and small business to start hiring again. As a former Congressman and State Legislator, I know that Mike Haridopolos has what it takes to tackle the debt and spending problems in Washington because he has a record of accomplishment in Florida when it comes to balancing budgets and restraining government spending” "
