Five legislators endorse George LeMieux



From a George LeMieux campaign release:


Senator Stephen Wise, R-Jacksonville: “George LeMieux is the only proven candidate in the race.  He has already shown Florida he will stand up against Washington’s wasteful spending and job-killing policies.   He is a true conservative and has a voting record to prove it. That’s why I am supporting George LeMieux for the US Senate.”
Representative Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach: “George LeMieux's laser-focus on the national debt sets him apart in the US Senate race. He is a conservative of conviction, not convenience. When George LeMieux defeats Bill Nelson, Florida will have sent Marco Rubio the backup he desperately needs in Washington.”
Representative Jason Brodeur, R-Sanford: “It is my pleasure to endorse George LeMieux for the office of US Senator. Sen. LeMieux has had the distinct opportunity to serve Floridians in the past and his voting record, particularly in contrast to Sen. Nelson, has been exemplary. His proven conservative track record and swift reaction to Florida’s challenges, such as during the Gulf oil spill, should give every Floridian confidence that Sen. LeMieux is qualified, able and ready to lead Florida in Washington, DC.”
Representative George R. Moraitis, Jr., R-Fort Lauderdale: “During these challenging times we need strong leaders with exceptional character to step forward and I am honored to endorse George LeMieux to be our next Senator as he embodies these qualities.  Senator LeMieux has a distinguished record of public service and leadership in our community as well as an unwavering commitment to put our nation’s fiscal house in order. Please join me in supporting George LeMieux to be our next Senator from the great State of Florida and send a strong message to Washington for lower taxes and responsible government.”
Representative John Tobia, R-Melbourne: “The 2012 election is critical to both our state and our great nation. During his time in Washington, Senator LeMieux proved to be a steadfast conservative leader. For far too long, Bill Nelson has been a liberal, do-nothing Senator and I am confident that Senator George LeMieux is the right man to join Senator Marco Rubio in Washington and help get our nation back on track.”
“It is a great honor to be endorsed by conservative leaders throughout the state,” said George LeMieux. “These legislators spend their time in Tallahassee fighting for conservative values and fiscal responsibility and they know I will represent their priorities in Washington.  I am proud to have their support to fight Bill Nelson’s job-killing, fiscally irresponsible agenda.”
