In endorsing LeMieux, State Representative Rooney said: “George has shown his commitment to undo the unnecessary regulations facing small business and industries created by the Obama administration. He understands the need to create an environment that allows for growth and expansion to get our economy headed in the right direction. His prior experience in the Senate battling the Democrats has made him the best candidate to take on Senator Nelson and his continual support of the failed Obama agenda.
“As a family man, he knows the challenges we face to ensure our children grow up and have the tools to be successful in this great country. He also understands the need to ensure our elderly and more vulnerable populations are properly taken care of. This compassion, along with his fiscal conservative outlook, is the type of leadership we desperately need in Washington DC fighting for us.”
Today’s announcement makes a total of 16 Florida legislators supporting LeMieux.
