Sen. Scott Endorses Leo Valentin for Congress


Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) announced today that he’s endorsing Dr. Leo Valentin (R) in his bid against Florida Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D) to represent the sunshine state’s 7th Congressional District.

In his announcement, the former Florida Governor argued that Valentin’s background as a businessman and physician will help cut bureaucracy in Washington.

The Florida lawmaker commented that is “proud to endorse Dr. Leo Valentin in the race for Florida’s 7thCongressional District,” saying that “Leo Valentin isn’t a career politician – he’s a physician and businessman.” Scott added that “we need more people like him in Washington who will fight to cut bureaucracy and red tape to make Washington work for Florida families,” asserting that Valentin “has my full support.”

In response to the endorsement, Valentin expressed that he is “honored to have the support of Senator Rick Scott,” noting that “for too long, politicians have put the D.C. swamp ahead of Florida families.” Because of this, Valentin stressed that “Senator Scott knows what it takes to cut the red tape and put Florida families ahead of the D.C. swamp, and I look forward to serving alongside him.”
