“I live five minutes from I-4 and making sure we win this seat in Congress in November is personal for me. Luckily, we have a new generation of leadership here, my friend, Andrew Learned, who is ready to serve. I am proud to support him to be the next congressman for Florida’s 15th District.

Please join me in supporting Andrew and let us take the opportunity to send a true servant leader to Washington. Join me and consider contributing to Andrew Learned for Congress today.
