Al Cardenas non-endorsement a last-minute issue in Adams vs. Mica primary

in Uncategorized by

Orlando’s WFTW-9 reports that Mica has claimed the endorsement of American Conservative Union head Al Cardenas with a supportive quote on a mailer – something he didn’t mean as an endorsement in his capacity at the ACU, according to a spokesperson.

The Mica campaign insists the comments were approved in writing by Cardenas, going so far as to share a copy of this email.   … Mr. Cardenas reiterated his personal support for Congressman John Mica: … ‘John Mica has my personal support. We have been friends for more than 30 years.’

The Mica campaign “has never stated that John Mica has either the endorsement of the American Conservative Union or Cardenas in his capacity as head of that organization.”
