Representative Gary Aubuchon has formally endorsed Dane Eagle to replace him in the Florida House of Representatives. Eagle has been campaigning for the open State House seat since November when Aubuchon, who also serves as Chairman of the Lee County Legislative Delegation, announced his intention to run for Congress.
“I have full confidence that Dane Eagle will represent Cape Coral well,” Representative Aubuchon said, “There is not a more qualified candidate to follow in my steps of keeping taxes low, the budget balanced and economic development a priority.”
“Representative Aubuchon has been a strong leader in the Florida House and for Southwest Florida, and I am truly honored to have his support as I attempt to follow in his footsteps,” said Eagle, “I admire him for his campaign to bring his leadership to Washington, and he has my full support.”
Other notables to endorse Eagle include former Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp, Senate President Pro-Tempore Mike Bennett, and Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott.
