TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 13, 2016) – The Florida Chamber of Commerce today announces five candidate endorsements in competitive races for the Florida Senate.
Today’s latest round of endorsements is part of a larger Florida Chamber effort to help elect pro-jobs, pro-business candidates that support private-sector job creation and economic growth.
“Each day, we are reminded how effective leadership that focuses on the long-term can be for our state,” said Marian Johnson, Senior Vice President of Political Operations for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “We believe that each candidate we endorse will ensure the long-term needs of Florida’s families and small businesses are placed before short-term political fixes and special interest agendas.”
Candidates endorsed today for the Florida Senate include:
- Representative Doug Holder (R)
- Representative Edwin Narain (D)
- Representative Kathleen Passidomo (R)
- Representative Bobby Powell (D)
- Representative Ritch Workman (R)
Endorsed incumbent candidates were evaluated on numerous factors, including their historical grades on the Florida Chamber’s Legislative Report Card. Additionally, the Florida Chamber Political Institute (FCPI) has hosted candidate interview sessions across Florida – interviewing more than 100 non-incumbent candidates.
