In a critical move to bolster her re-election efforts, US Rep. Laurel Lee (R-FL) has scored the endorsements of US Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) and US Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

Senators Scott and Rubio have been staples of Florida conservatism for years, with Scott being governor for two terms before his time in the United States Senate, and Sen. Rubio serving Florida  House of Representatives for over eight years.

This year, Lee managed to get several pieces of bipartisan legislation done.  Lee's bill: The Revising Existing Procedures On Reporting via Technology (REPORT) Act, has been signed into law by President Joe Biden (D). The bill looks to change requirements regarding how electronic service providers submit reports to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) when they are alerted of violations involving the sexual exploitation of children online.

Lee has also worked with Democrats on cracking down on domestic violence with the Supporting the Abused by Learning Options to Navigate Survivor (SALONS) Stories Act.

“Laurel Lee has been a great conservative partner in Washington as we fight to hold Congressional Democrats and the Biden administration accountable for their disastrous policies that continue to fail Florida families, whether it be their tax-and-spend agenda that has caused skyrocketing inflation or dangerously allowing open borders,” said Scott. “She has proven to be a strong and principled leader, and I’ve seen firsthand how hard she is working to make a difference in the direction our country is headed. Laurel has more than earned my continued support as she runs for re-election this year, and I’m proud to have endorsed her campaign.”

“Since being elected to Congress, Laurel Lee has shown that she is a powerful conservative voice and an effective advocate for families and the people of Florida,” said Rubio. “Day in and day out in Washington, she’s working to hold those who have failed Floridians accountable and pushing for Republican policies to ensure the safety of our country. I’m proud to call her a partner in Congress and endorse her re-election campaign.”

These endorsements are crucial for Lee as 2024 looks to be a high stakes election.  With a busy first term, Lee has managed to get the two most important endorsements for a Florida Republican.
