State Senator Aaron Bean (R-4), who has stacked up quite the impressive résumé in the Florida Senate, has just announced his candidacy for US Congress in Florida's fourth Congressional District.
The newly-drawn Congressional District will represent parts of the same area that he represented in the state Senate, namely Nassau and Duval Counties.
"Our nation is at a crossroads, being ripped apart at the seams by a liberal agenda that stifles economic growth and seeks to silence family values," said Bean. "We’re enduring rising inflation, gas prices that are crippling hardworking Americans, unprotected borders, a loss of respect for law and order, and constant federal overreach by a government attempting to tell us that they know what is best. I will not rest on the sidelines. I will stand up for the free state of Florida and carry the torch of conservative Northeast Florida and the Ron DeSantis Doctrine, a doctrine of freedom for all Americans, to Washington."
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). Bean has long served his local community, while raising a family and running a small business, with a focus on knowing what it means to work hard every day and on what his community needs.
Although he has an extensive list of achievements, getting the party nomination will not be so easy. Bean will have to face off against Navy Veteran, Dr. Erick Aguilar (R-FL), who is running a similar styled campaign and has seen plenty of success in campaign contributions, and State Rep. Jason Fischer.
