Dane Eagle (R), currently vying for Florida Rep. Francis Rooney’s (R) congressional seat, is facing off against a slew of contenders that are also looking to be Florida’s next representative.
In his bid, Eagle has just gained the endorsement of the National Association of Home Builders.
The Florida House Majority Leader made the announcement today, expressing his gratitude and highlighting that “these men and women are going to be at the forefront of helping rebuild America’s economy once we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis.” He added that “their trust and support is a testament to my effectiveness of creating pro-job growth policies in the Florida Legislature,” noting that he looks “forward to doing the same in Congress.”
Dean Mon, the NAHB Chairman, who is also a home builder and developer from Shrewsbury, NJ, released a statement praising Eagle’s work, detailing that “Majority Leader Eagle has worked tirelessly to advance the interests of his Florida constituents and demonstrated that he is a champion of housing by supporting policies to ease the nation’s housing affordability crisis, put families in homes, create jobs and spur economic growth.”
Eagle is currently running in a competitive race which includes Republicans such as Casey Askar, Byron Donalds, Darren Dione Aquino, William Figlesthaler, Heather Fitzenhagen, Randy Henderson, Christy McLaughlin, Ford O’Connell and Dan Severson, whom the Floridian recently interviewed.
