Why State Rep. Larry Ahern supports Donald Trump



Space constraints prevented us from using Rep. Larry Ahern in today's print story about how few elected officials in Florida are supporting likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Here's what he said:

"Donald Trump is an outsider and, like when I first ran, isn't beholden to the machinery of modern day politics. I respect Governor Bush and Senator Rubio, however I chose the person to support I thought could be most effective in reducing the size and scope of the federal government and that man is still Donald Trump. "
