Gov. Rick Scott Senate Campaign Secures Endorsement of National, State, and Local Chambers of Commerce
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – At a joint event with Governor Rick Scott in Jacksonville, the United States Chamber of Commerce, Florida Chamber of Commerce, and the political committee affiliated with the JAX Chamber of Commerce announced their endorsements of Governor Rick Scott’s bid for U.S. Senate. This is the first time in Florida history that local, state and national Chambers of Commerce have come together to announce a joint campaign endorsement. Each Chamber recognized Governor Scott’s continued commitment to cutting taxes, reducing burdensome regulations, and supporting economic development on behalf of Florida families and job creators.
“Since my first day as governor, I have been on a mission to turn Florida’s economy around, and I am proud of the work we have done to make it easier for job creators to succeed by cutting taxes, reducing burdensome regulations and building a competitive business climate,” said Governor Rick Scott. “With the support of partners like our Chambers of Commerce, Florida has set an example to the rest of the country on how government should create an environment for businesses small and large to thrive. That is exactly what I am going to do in D.C., and I appreciate the support of our national, state, and local job creators as we show Washington what it means to get to work.”
“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce our endorsement of Governor Rick Scott for the U.S. Senate as part of the first joint local, state and national Chamber endorsement in Florida history,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President Rob Engstrom. “Governor Scott has a proven track record of fighting for tax cuts and pro job creation policies that have helped Florida’s economy thrive. We look forward to seeing this leadership continue in the Senate as we continue to work together to support long-term economic growth for American families and businesses.”
“I have seen firsthand the incredible economic turnaround in Florida under the leadership of Governor Rick Scott,” said Florida Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Mark Wilson. “His laser-like focus on cutting taxes and eliminating burdensome regulations has made it easier for Florida businesses, both large and small, to thrive and create new opportunities for Florida’s families. Electing Governor Scott to the U.S. Senate will ensure the rest of the nation can benefit from the leadership we here in Florida have enjoyed over the last seven and a half years.”
“Governor Rick Scott’s tireless work to cut taxes and remove unnecessary red tape has paved the way for companies to invest billions of dollars in our state and create hundreds of thousands of jobs for Florida families, said JAX Chamber President and CEO Daniel Davis. “Governor Scott will bring the same economic focus to Washington and that’s exactly what we need in the U.S. Senate.”
