The Coronavirus has just shut down the congressional campaign of Rep. Ross Spano (R) in Florida.
According to Spano’s campaign, the freshman congressman’s reelection campaign is temporarily suspended “effective immediately” due to the COVID-19 outbreak
“My priorities right now do not include politics or my re-election to office,” said Spano.
“I’m focused on the health and safety of my constituents and Floridians alike during this national emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives displayed what is possible when we unite as leaders to confront a threat to the American people. I’ll continue to work tirelessly with President Trump and my colleagues in Congress to provide additional relief to small businesses, incentivize employers to allows employees to work from home, and help to protect those facing job-layoffs.
We as Americans must all come together in these trying times to help prevent further spread of this virus,” he added.
Rep. Spano, along with Reps. Ted Deutch, Gus Bilirakis, Matt Gaetz, Bill Posey, Brian Mast, Darren Soto, Ted Yoho, Neil Dunn, Mario Diaz-Balart, Michael Waltz, Daniel Webster, Stephanie Murphy, John Rutherford, Vern Buchanan, and Greg Steube, all signed a letter of support of, and voted voted in favor of the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020.
