By Javier ManjarresRepublican congressional candidate Karen Harrington has landed one of the most coveted endorsements within the state of Florida, that of Governor Jeb Bush’s. Earlier this morning, the Karen Harrington for Congress campaign released a statement containing Governor Bush’s endorsement accompanied by Harrington’s remarks accepting the endorsement.
Harrington is facing off against Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to represent the 23rd congressional district. Wasserman Schultz has been criticized by Harrington for not releasing her tax returns as well as being an ‘absentee congresswoman’ in her congressional district.
Just last week, Harrington sent Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz a birthday cake on the congresswoman’s 46th birthday reminding the congresswoman that she had not replied to Harrington’s request for five debates and had failed to produce her tax returns. (Source-Cake)
Here’s the Harrington press release announcing her endorsement by former Governor Jeb Bush-
Davie, Florida- Karen Harrington, who is running for the U.S. Congress against Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has just received the endorsement of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.“Our campaign is honored to have received the support of Gov. Jeb Bush. Over the years, Gov. Bush’s leadership and unwavering principles have been an inspiration to many Floridians including myself.”–Karen Harrington (Post)
“Karen Harrington is a small business owner who knows how difficult it is to run a business during these tough economic times, and how destructive government regulations can be to business, both small and large. America needs business leaders like Karen who are willing and able to go to Congress and help steer our economy in the right direction.” – Governor Jeb Bush
Is yet another coveted endorsement just around the corner? Paging Senator Marco Rubio.
