Kushmer Qualifies in U.S. House Race
Danny Kushmer is running for the District 15 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
BRANDON – Danny Kushmer has qualified for the Florida Congressional District 15 seat being vacated by Republican Dennis Ross.
“These past few weeks have been very humbling as I have enjoyed gaining the support of many voters throughout Florida’s 15th Congressional District,” Kushmer said. “My message of sending a solid – conservative – businessman to Congress is resounding. The time has come to bring a new perspective to Congress, the time has come to rid Washington, D.C. of career politicians.”
If elected, Kushmer said he will work for a balanced budget, expanded mental health care coverage through insurance reform, and to create a “presumption of compliance” for farmers and ranchers that incorporate best management practices, ensuring protection of the environment and water resources. Kushmer said he is a firm believer in term limits, supports term limits for both the House and Senate, and has pledged to serve a maximum of eight years (four terms) in Congress.
Kushmer, a third generation Floridian from southeastern Hillsborough County, with deep roots in agriculture is a conservative Republican. He lives in Brandon with his wife, Cally, three rescue dogs and a cat. They have four grown children. Kushmer is a graduate of the University of Florida’s Wedgeworth Leadership Institute for Agriculture and Natural Resources.
Kushmer is one of 12 candidates who have qualified to run for the CD 15 seat. The others are Republicans Neil Combee, Sean Harper, Curt Rogers, Ed Shoemaker and Ross Spano; Democrats Kristen Carson, Andrew P. Learned and Raymond “Ray” Pena; and write-in candidates Alek Bynzar, Dave Johnson and Jeffrey G. Rabinowitz.
CD 15 includes portions of Hillsborough, Lake and Polk counties.
The primary election is Aug. 28. The general election is Nov. 6.
