Daniel Webster, a family man and small-business owner, has dedicated himself to serve the citizens of central Florida with honor and integrity. During his tenure in office, he has proven himself to be a true statesman, standing by his principles and steadily advancing conservative values. As the state House Republican Leader in the 1990s, Webster engineered the successful Republican takeover of 1996, ending 122 years of Democrat control and becoming the first GOP Speaker of the House in over a century.
From his first day in leadership, Webster worked to reform the way the Legislature did business, and his sweeping conservative reforms earned him widespread praise from the people of Florida. As Speaker of the House, Webster required each proposed law to meet specific criteria that would determine its effectiveness in advancing conservative principles.Daniel Webster was elected to the Florida Senate in 1998 and served as Majority Leader his final three years. Being known as a man of his word, Webster continued to gain respect and acclaim on both sides of the aisle for his solid principles and trusted leadership.
Above all, Daniel Webster still holds his faith, his family, and his principles as his biggest assets. These are the same values he will rely on to guide him as our U.S. Congressman.
