“While I served in the Florida House, Tom Lee proved to be an outstanding leader. He never forgot his deep roots in Hillsborough County as a longtime Brandon-area resident. Alongside Jeb Bush and my Speaker Allan Bense, Tom took the reins of a bold, yet commonsense conservative agenda that aimed to improve the quality of life for families and job-creators in his community. He was a solid, homegrown conservative leader then, and he’ll be that same leader again.
“As South Hillsborough County’s Congressman, I know from that experience that if Tom Lee goes to Tallahassee as its next Senator, our constituents will be in the best of hands. I’m excited to see Tom running for Senate, and he has my full endorsement.”
