State Rep. Chuck Clemons (R-FL) has made a key endorsement of Levy County Commissioner Chad Johnson (R-FL) who is running to succeed Clemons in the upcoming election in House District 22.

Clemons has been term-limited this election cycle, reaching the maximum time allotted to a representative in the Florida House.  Clemons has been serving since his election in 2016 to the Florida House of Representatives. The representative kept his post through elections and is known for zealously backing economic development and education in Florida.

Chad Johnson, now endorsed by Clemons, is a sixth-generation Floridian, and born in Alachua County, Florida. Johnson has familial connections in both Gilchrist and Marion County, Florida. Before becoming the Levy County Commissioner, Johnson graduated from the University of Florida, and started his family of now four children.

"Chad Johnson's strong ties to the region and deep understanding of the various communities that make District 22 so unique make him the right candidate to carry on our hard work in the legislature," Clemons said of candidate Johnson. "Chad is a proven leader who will tirelessly fight for free markets, limited government, and private property rights for all Floridians. It is my pleasure to endorse him and to ask others in our district to support him in his effort."

"It is an honor to have Speaker Chuck Clemons ' endorsement," responded Johnson. "I look forward to following in his footsteps in the Florida House as a champion for common sense, freedom, and agriculture. Floridians in Gilchrist, Levy and Alachua counties can count on me to serve them with the same unwavering dedication and commitment shown by Speaker Clemons."

Johnson has since promised that he will back policies that, "keep Florida free and also fight to protect District 22's quality of life and natural resources."
