    Former Puerto Rico Governor and Democrat Carlos Romero Barceló Endorses Gov. Scott’s Campaign for U.S. Senate

    MIAMI, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott joined former Puerto Rico Governor and democrat Carlos Romero Barceló in Miami to meet with South Florida’s Puerto Rican community and announce Carlos Romero Barceló’s endorsement of the Governor’s U.S. Senate campaign. Carlos Romero Barceló also previously served as Puerto Rico’s Congressman and state senator and as Mayor of San Juan. Governor Scott has accepted the endorsements of 60 Puerto Rican officials.

    Governor Rick Scott said, “I am proud to have worked closely with Puerto Rico leaders to ensure the families of Puerto Rico who are here in Florida have all the resources they need to succeed. My focus will always be on making sure Florida is the most welcoming state and that we are doing everything we can to help Puerto Ricans both here and on the island. I am honored to receive the endorsement today of Former Puerto Rico Governor Carlos Romero Barceló, an incredible leader and advocate for the Puerto Rican community. I look forward to continuing to do all we can in Florida to help Puerto Rican families, and I will keep fighting for these families in D.C.”

    Former Puerto Rico Governor Carlos Romero Barceló said, “As a former Governor, I know what it means to lead, and that is exactly what Governor Scott has done for his neighbors the American citizens in Puerto Rico. No one has helped the Puerto Rican community as much as Governor Scott, and he was here when they moved to Florida because of the Hurricane. No other elected official or politician has helped the American Citizens who have moved from Puerto Rico to Florida. As a lifelong Democrat, I value actions over words, and Governor Scott truly puts people above partisan politics. I am proud to endorse Governor Scott today, as he has proven time and time again to be a true partner, friend and supporter of fellow American Citizens of Puerto Rico. I know he will continue to be the best person to fight for us in our quest for equality in Washington as Florida’s next Senator.”
