In his reelection bid for Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, Jimmy Patronis has just received Senator Marco Rubio’s endorsement.
In a statement, Senator Rubio said that “Today, I am pleased to announce my support and strong endorsement for Jimmy Patronis to remain Florida’s Chief Financial Officer.”
Rubio also added that “Jimmy Patronis is someone voters can trust to effectively manage our state’s finances. Through his unwavering dedication to protecting Florida consumers and instrumental advocacy on behalf of our first responders, he has earned our vote this November.”
In response to the endorsement, Patronis praised the work Rubio has done in the Senate, saying that “It is an absolute honor to receive the backing of Senator Marco Rubio in my bid to continue serving as the CFO of Florida.”
Patronis also explained that “His leadership as both Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives and now in the U.S. Senate has been invaluable to our state.”
To conclude his thoughts on the endorsement, Patronis explained that “Because of the hard work of Florida’s conservative leaders, we have an economy that is prospering. Together, Senator Rubio and I will continue this momentum.”
In Patronis’ reelection bid, he faces Democrat Jeremy Ring, and a report released last week from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement exposed that a Democratic researcher tried to pose as Patronis to access his personal information.
