RELEASE: RPOF Announces the Florida Leadership Victory Committee

TALLAHASSEE, FL- The Republican Party of Florida today announced the Florida Leadership Victory Committee, which will work to ensure Florida’s role in electing Republicans up and down the ballot is successful.

The Florida Leadership Victory Committee will be co-chaired by Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

Blaise Ingoglia, RPOF Chairman: “It has always been our objective that Republicans up and down the ballot have success come November.  As a battleground state, the Republican Party of Florida is spending its time and resources supporting candidates that stand for conservative principles that will reverse the course of President Obama’s failed agenda.  For the Sunshine State, this election is about keeping Hillary Clinton out of the oval office by delivering Florida's 29 electoral votes to the Republican nominee and restoring prosperity to our country."

Lt. Governor of Florida, Carlos Lopez-Cantera: “With control of the Senate comes the direction of the disastrous Iran Deal, the filling of potentially multiple Supreme Court vacancies and the economic future of our country. This committee will work to elect Republicans up and down the ballot because this is a crucial point in our nation’s history, and I am honored to serve as a co-chair alongside CFO Atwater and Commissioner Putnam. The Republican Party of Florida’s efforts will ensure we do not have to see Chuck Schumer as majority leader, because that would be unthinkable. 

Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater: “Our nation’s economy hinges on this year’s election. We must all work to maintain Republican majorities at the local, state and federal level, and the grassroots effort here in Florida will be crucial. Florida is a key battleground state, and the committee is devoted to providing the resources necessary for a strong victory in November.”

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam: “Once again, it all comes down to Florida. Without a continued majority in the Senate and House, including Marco Rubio’s leadership, we put America's future at risk. We need to elect principled conservatives now more than ever, and that is why we must work for Republican victories up and down the ballot. These races are too important to take for granted, and Florida and America's futures depend on it.”  

The Florida Leadership Victory Committee will provide the resources necessary to support Florida’s commitment to implementing the strongest grassroots ground game in the country, and will be responsible for party-building activities ranging from voter registration to get-out-the-vote efforts.
