Blaise Ingoglia received a substantial recommendation today as Attorney General Pam Bondi announced her support of the Republican running for State House District 35.
Ingoglia, a vice chair of the Republican Party of Florida, faces Democrats David Welsh and Rose Rocco in the race to replace term-limited Rep. Rob Schenck for the seat covering much of Hernando County.
“Blaise has been an effective leader for the Republican Party and has been a strong conservative voice on the issues important to residents of Hernando County and to our state,” Bondi said in a statement. “His small business background combined with his leadership ability has prepared Blaise to be a strong and clear voice for his community and in our state capitol.”
“I am honored and humbled to receive the support and endorsement of our state’s Attorney General, Pam Bondi,” Ingoglia responded. “Attorney General Bondi has served and protected Floridians for many years. She served as an assistant state attorney protecting our communities from some of Florida’s most violent criminals.”
“I deeply appreciate Pam Bondi’s commitment to our state and to the residents of Hernando County and am grateful for her endorsement.”
In supporting Ingoglia, Bondi joins a growing list of statewide Republicans, including State Sens. Wilton Simpson, John Thrasher, Tom Lee and John Legg, as well as scores of conservatives throughout Florida politics.
A Spring Hill homebuilder and former professional tournament poker player, Ingoglia became a well-known political character through his www.governmentgonewild.org website, presenting a series of videos calling out wasteful spending in Washington, D.C.
