George LeMieux announces Jacksonville campaign team



From the George LeMieux U.S. Senate campaign:


Duval County Sheriff John H. Rutherford said, “I support George LeMieux because he knows the importance of federal support for local law enforcement. George knows the value of federal legislators working closely with local officials, as we all strive to protect the people of Florida. George will go to the United States Senate and fight for our state’s right to govern its own people and support us when we need Washington.”

John Falconetti, owner of Drummond Press, said, "As a business owner, I am plagued with government overregulation on a daily basis. I know that the best way to grow our economy is to get the government out of the way. That's why I am endorsing George LeMieux for US Senate. I am supporting George because he has a real plan that will lessen burdensome regulations, lower the corporate tax rate, and propose a national Right to Work law. Business owners need George, so we can continue to create jobs for unemployed Floridians."
