Lt. Governor Jeanette Nunez endorses Rep. Ana Maria Rodriguez


Top Florida Republicans are beginning to line up behind State Rep. Ana Maria Rodriguez’s District 39 Senate race to replace Senator Anitere Flores (R), who is leaving public service due to term-limits.

Flores has already endorsed Rodriguez and not Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nunez has jumped on board to lend a hand, saying that Floridians needed and deserved a “strong leader” like Rodriguez.

“South Florida needs and deserves a strong leader like Ana Maria Rodriguez in the Florida Senate,” said Nuñez. “As a working mother and a community leader, Ana Maria has proven she understands the challenges and opportunities facing the people of South Florida. I am proud to stand with my friend, Ana Maria Rodriguez.”
