in Uncategorized by

Today, Blaise Ingoglia received the endorsement of fellow conservative Republican, State Sen. John Legg from Florida District 17.

Ingoglia, the Spring Hill homebuilder and Republican Party vice chair, is running for House District 35, which covers areas of Hernando County. Legg represents south Pasco and northeast Hillsborough Counties and is the founder of the Dayspring Academy, Pasco County’s first charter school.

“Blaise Ingoglia realizes, as I do, that every Florida child is unique,” Legg says in a statement released by the Ingoglia campaign. “I applaud Blaise Ingoglia’s commitment to Florida’s future and to a better education system. I am proud to endorse him for State Representative, District 35.”

Legg’s endorsement adds another conservative Republican to the list of Ingoglia supporters, which include:

  • State Sen. Wilton Simpson, District 18
  • Hernando County Commission Chairman Dave Russell
  • Florida House Speaker Pro-Tempore Marti Coley, District 5
  • Hernando County Commissioner Nick Nicholson
  • State Rep. Dennis Baxley, District 23
  • Hernando School Board Member John Sweeney

“I am honored to have the support of Senator John Legg,” Ingoglia responds. “Florida’s future lies within our students, and Senator Legg works extremely hard for our next generation and generations to come. I am humbled to have his support.”

Ingoglia is running to replace term-limited Republican Rep. Rob Schenck.

Ingoglia hopes to bring his message on wasteful spending to Tallahassee, made popular in his series of “Government Gone Wild” seminars, videos and website.
