The Republican Party of Florida is hosting several debates for critical primary races, one of which happens to be Congressional District 4 in North East Florida. State Senator Aaron Bean (R) has just earned the endorsement of Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for Congress.
Senator Bean has been a member of the Florida Senate since 2012 where he currently serves as the President Pro Tempore. Bean has been a noted advocate for lowering taxes on Floridians and supporting the Florida freedom agenda and policies of Governor DeSantis (R-FL).
Rubio issued his zealous endorsement of Bean this week, "Aaron Bean is a principled conservative leader and business owner who knows what Florida families need and will stand up for our values in Washington," said Senator Rubio. "I have considered Aaron a friend since we served together in the Florida House, and I am so glad that he’s put himself forward to serve the people of Northeast Florida in Congress. I am proud to endorse Aaron Bean's campaign for Congress."
"I am so grateful and excited for the endorsement from Senator Rubio," said Bean. "Senator Rubio has been up in Washington fighting for Florida and our nation in the U.S. Senate, and I hope to be his partner in the U.S. House come November. I served with Senator Rubio when he was the Speaker of the Florida House and was a proud member of his leadership team. What we accomplished in the House, putting an exclamation point on the conservative agenda and policies that are now a part of the fabric of Florida, I hope to mirror in Washington together."
While the endorsement of Rubio may be Bean's biggest nod, the candidate also announced an extensive list of leaders from the region, as well as Nassau, and Clay Counties, including the sheriffs of Clay and Nassau Counties, who have all joined in endorsing the Bean campaign.

Currently, Bean is facing off against a reputable opponent, Dr. Erick Aguilar (R), who has raised significant funds in his effort to win Florida's 4th Congressional seat.
