Today, Congressman Steve Southerland delivered remarks in Tallahassee to a packed house at the regular monthly meeting of the Capital City Republican Club. Over 125 attendees filled the Magnolia Room at the Capital City Country Club, listening to Southerland provide an update on his latest activities in Washington, D.C., covering such topics as the different budgets passed by the House and the Senate; the debate over the Sequester; and the ongoing growth within the Republican Conference of the U.S. House.

“I always enjoy the opportunity to visit with friends at the Capital City Republican Club — where Tallahassee’s most dedicated Republicans unite behind the banner of fiscal accountability, personal responsibility, and earned success,” said Congressman Steve Southerland. “These cherished values shouldn’t belong to just one party; they are common sense principles that any American can support. As we work together to address our nation’s greatest challenges, I know that my ability to fight for North Florida is strengthened by the relationships I’ve formed and feedback I’ve received from members of the Club.”

Southerland spoke for over half an hour, answered questions from the audience, and received a standing ovation at the conclusion of his remarks. He remained behind after the formal program and spoke individually with every person who came up to him.

“Congressman Southerland has been a strong leader on Republican issues,” said Club President Matt Doster. “We believe he is doing what many in Washington are not, and that is staying true to conservative principles. He continues to vote for fiscal restraint, limits to government expansion, and a strong America. We were delighted to hear from him today.”
