State Rep. Travis Hutson is now the latest in a solid list of GOP conservatives supporting Blaise Ingoglia for Florida House District 35.

Hutson, a freshman Republican from Elkton, announced his support today of the state GOP vice chair, who is running to replace term-limited Rep. Bob Schenck.  

“I am excited to endorse Blaise Ingoglia for the Florida House,” Hutson. “Blaise is a true conservative, dedicated to holding government accountable and advocating for fiscally responsible policy. I look forward to serving with him in Tallahassee.”

Ingoglia is a Spring Hill homebuilder and former professional tournament poker player, became a polarizing partisan character through his website, featuring a series of “Government Gone Wild” videos which calls out wasteful spending in Tallahassee.

“I am honored to receive Representative Hutson’s endorsement today,” Ingoglia said in a statement. “Representative Hutson is an energetic leader with real world business experience and a commitment to making Florida the most attractive place for people to want to live, work, and play.”

Hutson makes the 16th conservative legislator endorsing  Ingoglia’s campaign for the Hernando County seat, a unified support that may be preventing others from entering the contest. Currently, Ingoglia is running unopposed.

Among the other state GOP members who are backing Ingoglia: Sens. Wilton Simpson, John Legg and Kelli Stargel; Reps. Ray Pilon, Ross Spano and Debbie Mayfield; and Hernando County Commissioners Nick Nicholson, Wayne Dukes and Chair Dave Russell.
