Florida Chamber Endorsements

With Your Help, We Can Support Candidates Who Will Make Florida’s Future a Priority

> WATCH the non-partisan Florida Wins Candidate Interview Series to find out where your candidates stand on the issue.

To secure Florida’s future, we need a legislature that focuses on free enterprise principles and job creation. The Florida Chamber’s thorough and intense endorsement process sends a very strong signal that Florida families and small businesses can feel confident in supporting these candidates. Candidates who were endorsed were evaluated on numerous factors, including their historical grades on the Florida Chamber’s Legislative Report Card and the Florida Chamber Political Institute’s (FCPI) candidate interview sessions across Florida. FCPI members interviewed more than 100 non-incumbent candidates.

“The Florida Chamber has a long-standing reputation of only endorsing those candidates who are brave enough to place Florida’s long-term future before short-term and politically popular fixes,” said MARIAN JOHNSON, Senior Vice President of Political Operations for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “It’s these candidates that will help ensure Florida continues to create jobs and economic opportunity and we are proud to support each of them in their efforts.”
