Carlos Beruff can check all 67 counties off his to-visit list.

The U.S. Senate hopeful said Tuesday he would wrap up a tour of all 67 Florida counties. The Manatee County businessman had said he planned to visit all of the state’s counties before the Aug. 30 primary.

“It is important to visit with people from all across this great state, many of whom feel ignored by our elected officials,” he said in a statement. “That’s why I committed to visiting all 67 Florida counties in the first three months of my campaign and why I’ve committed to visiting all 67 counties every year as your U.S. Senator.”

Beruff was scheduled to be in North Florida and Sarasota on Tuesday. He is one of five Republicans vying to replace Marco Rubio in the U.S. Senate.

He faces Republicans Ron DeSantis, David Jolly, Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Todd Wilcox in the August Republican primary.

“Voters all across this state are fed up with the status quo in Washington, and I’m committed to bringing real change to the U.S. Senate,” said Beruff.
