In the race to replace Florida Rep. Francis Rooney (R) amid his retirement for holding office, Republican Casey Askar is looking to propel himself to greater heights as he’s just released a new campaign advertisement titled “It’s Time to Fight Back,” possibly cementing as one of the frontrunners in Florida’s 19thcongressional district's Republican primary race.

Detailing his history of military service and calling for an end to what he believes is the violence and attacks on symbols of Christian faith and American history, Askar expresses in the video that “my family came to America to have the freedom to pursue our values: faith, family, and community.”

Askar adds that he “joined the Marines when I turned 18 to protect these values and give back to this country that offered me so much.” Moreover, he cites what he sees are troubling times for those values, mentioning that “our country and our values are under attack.” Askar notes that “left-wing anarchists are tearing down statues of our Founders, setting churches on fire, and inciting violence all voer this great nation.” In turn, “it’s time that we fight back, and that’s what I intend to do when I’m elected to Congress.”

Askar is part of a crowded race for the Republican nomination in a district that has long voted Republican in the sunshine state.
