Know Where Your Candidates Stand

By: Florida Chamber of Commerce

The Florida Chamber Political Institute (FCPI) recently concluded statewide candidate interviews to learn more about the pro-business, pro-job platforms of candidates for Florida’s House and Senate. Each interview helps evaluate a candidate’s ideals on securing Florida’s future. FCPI traveled to five different cities across Florida –Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Tallahassee—to learn more about the political and personal side of each individual.

Following the FCPI interviews the Florida Chamber announced endorsements of candidates it believes will help lead Florida to a secure and sustainable future. At the Florida Chamber, we know that securing Florida’s future happens only when the right people are elected, and that’s what our political action is all about—electing those candidates who have a clearly defined understanding of the issues and are not afraid to boldly step up and do the right thing.

You’ve noticed many of our endorsements in the past weeks and more are forthcoming. Those endorsed are candidates we feel will put your families and businesses first. But in order to succeed, we must do our part to encourage our employees to get involved!

FloridaWins.org, a non-partisan, non-biased voter information resource is a great tool. There, employees can register to vote and learn more about candidates by watching short videos of candidates seeking office.
