Atwater’s endorsement of Nehr is pretty strong:
“As Chief Financial Officer of Florida, I fully support and endorse Representative Peter Nehr in his 2012 re-election efforts to the Florida House. Representative Nehr has an outstanding record of constituent service that goes above and beyond the average elected official. He is a true Conservative having received a score of 100% by the American Conservative Union for his stand on illegal immigration, property insurance reform, unemployment compensation reform and a host of other conservative issues that are very important to the citizens of Florida. Others may talk of being conservative, but Representative Nehr has proven by his votes in Tallahassee that he is the true conservative in this race. He is a great friend and advocate for his constituents and works hard on their behalf. I fully support and endorse Representative Peter Nehr and ask all voters in his district to support him as well.”
But so is Biliris’ endorsement of Sprowls:
“It is the character of an individual that provides steady guidance during difficult times and while the political winds change quite often, character is permanent” said Billiris in her statement of endorsement. “I believe Chris Sprowls demonstrates the level of character necessary to be a true steward of the people,”
A major statewide elected official on one side, a keyed-in local pol on the other. Man, this race gets more interesting every day.
