Former Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) has decided to throw his support at Iraqi war veteran Mike Giallombardo (R) over Bryan Blackwell in the race for Florida’s 77th congressional district seat.
Giallombardo, who recently landed the endorsement of current seat-holder Rep. Dane Eagle (R), is the clear frontrunner in the race and could soon release more heavyweight support for his campaign.
“I am very excited to announce that former Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera has endorsed my campaign for State Representative,” said Giallombardo “Carlos has dedicated himself to being a conservative leader for our state as both a member of the Florida House and as Lieutenant Governor. Having his support and confidence is a great honor and a testament to the hard work and grassroots momentum of our campaign.”
Lopez-Cantera stated the following:
“It's with great honor that I endorse my friend, Mike Giallombardo, for the Florida House of Representatives. Having been Lieutenant Governor and the Majority Leader of the Florida House, I know what it takes to be an effective leader in Florida. Mike has proven himself to be an effective leader on the battlefield, in business, and in his community; and I am confident he will be an equally effective leader in the fight to protect our conservative values in Florida".
