Former Gov. Jeb Bush  joined Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam’s “Florida Grown” Bus Tour and several hundred supporters this morning in Sarasota for a rally.

The day before the election, ush and Putnam, running for re-election, reminded the energized crowd of the importance of voting and the lasting impact this election will have on the future of Florida.

“We need to elect conservative leaders who believe in limited government, believe in entrepreneurial capitalism and believe that individuals acting together can create a better America. One of those people we need to elect is a great friend and a spectacular leader, and his name is Adam Putnam,” Bush said.

Putnam encouraged attendees to re-elect Florida’s Cabinet, made up of the Governor, Attorney General and Chief Financial Officer, for steering Florida back into prosperity after the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

“After the New York Times and Time Magazine wrote Florida’s obituary during the height of the recession, conservative leadership in Tallahassee cut unemployment in half, paid off $4 billion in debt and put another $3 billion in the bank.  If given another four years, we can help secure Florida’s future – and make sure Florida’s residents have a shot at the American Dream,” Putnam said.
