Congressional hopeful Carlos Curbelo has picked up the endorsement of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the campaign will announce this morning. Curbelo, a member of the Miami-Dade school board, is running against three other Republicans in the late August primary for the Florida’s 26th congressional district.
The winner of the GOP race will face off against Democratic Rep. Joe Garcia.
‘I am proud to stand with Carlos Curbelo, a young conservative leader who will work hard to reform our government, balance the budget, and improve the quality of life for the people of Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. As an education reformer, Carlos puts students first. In Washington, he will put his community and our country first,” said Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts.
