Gov. Rick Scott Secures Endorsement of Associated Industries of Florida
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Scott for Florida campaign announced that the Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) Board of Directors has endorsed Governor Rick Scott’s campaign for U.S. Senate. AIF is Florida’s foremost business trade group, with thousands of members across the state that represent every segment of Florida’s private sector.
Governor Rick Scott said, “Over the past seven and a half years, we’ve worked hard to improve the business climate in Florida by cutting taxes and reducing burdensome regulations and making it easier for job creators to create new opportunities for our families. With the support of partners like AIF, 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. As a U.S. Senator, I will continue to fight for businesses all across our country, and I appreciate the endorsement of AIF as we continue to work toward making Florida the best state in the nation for business and job growth.”
Tom Feeney, AIF President & CEO, said, “AIF Board of Directors is proud to endorse Republican Candidate Governor Rick Scott for U.S. Senate. Governor Scott has worked tirelessly from the very first day he took office to make Florida the No. 1 destination to do business for Florida families and job creators. He has fostered a business-friendly environment that benefits taxpayers and families by creating more than 1.5 million jobs and cutting more than $10 billion in taxes, including eliminating the manufacturing sales tax. We do not believe his work in Florida is done. It’s time for Florida to have a leader in Washington who will actually focus on securing results to help our families and job creators. We want to send Governor Scott to Washington to continue to build on his successes here in the Sunshine State. AIF Board of Directors stands with Governor Scott for U.S. Senate.”
