It’s an honor to receive such a strong show of support from some of Florida’s finest elected officials who’ve dedicated their lives to creating oppurtunities for Floridians to acheive earned success.
He has been endorsed by the following elected officials in the state:

Congressman Jeff Miller
Congressman John Mica
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Curbelo had the following to say about why he is supporting Bush:
Jeb Bush’s executive leadership experience both as Governor of Florida and in the private sector make him exceptionally qualified to renew America’s economic promise and restore our leadership role in the world.
Pam Bondi said:
It is an honor to endorse a leader who has done so much for Florida. I’ve known Jeb Bush for over a decade and witnessed how his strong conservative policies allowed our economy to prosper and grow.
Many believe the 2016 primary is going to be a challenge between Senator Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush. With Bush and Rubio being longtime friends and both from the Sunshine State it should be very interesting race.
