by Lone SharkShark Tank-endorsed candidate Melanie Peterson has secured a big endorsement from Florida’s junior Senator Marco Rubio in her race for State Senate. We’ve been following the very interesting District 25 Senate race throughout the past several months, as Peterson faces a general election showdown with State Representative Joe Abruzzo.
Here is Senator Rubio’s statement of endorsement-
“Melanie Peterson is a hometown candidate who demonstrates clear understanding of the issues that matter most to Floridians. Her experience as a small business owner of nearly 2 decades gives her a competitive edge in helping grow Florida’s economy and getting our neighbors back to work. Palm Beach County will be greatly served by Melanie Peterson and I am excited to endorse her for State Senate.”
Peterson’s campaign issued the following release just this evening-
“I am humbled by Senator Rubio’s endorsement. As a 25-year resident of western Palm Beach County and a small business owner, I have an intimate understanding of the issues facing our neighbors. We must get Florida’s economy back on track and create more jobs.”
