“The Florida Chamber endorsement is an honor to receive. Florida’s businesses and consumers alike need a tireless advocate with a proven track record and principled leadership to be the next Commissioner,” Rep. Caldwell said. “There’s a right way and a wrong way to do the Commissioner’s job, and I will fight for more jobs, low taxes, policy know-how, and the future of all 21 million Floridians—no shortcuts.”
