RUBIO ENDORSES KATHLEEN PASSIDOMO
NAPLES, Fla. — Today, United States Senator Marco Rubio endorsed Representative Kathleen Passidomo for re-election to a second term in the Florida House of Representatives.
“Representative Passidomo has made an important and positive impact in the Florida Legislature,” said U.S. Senator Marco Rubio. “Her perspectives and experiences as a small businesswoman and community leader have played an instrumental role in her ability to promote job creation policies that help Floridians.”
Senator Rubio joins a long line of state and local elected officials who have endorsed Passidomo including Florida CFO Jeff Atwater, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, State Senator Garrett Richter, Speaker Designate of the Florida House of Representatives Will Weatherford, former State Representative Mary Ellen Hawkins, Naples Mayor John Sorey III, Marco Island City Council Chairman Larry Magel, Naples Vice-Mayor Gary Price, Marco Island City Council Vice Chairman Joe Batte, Naples City Councilman and Former Mayor Bill Barnett and Collier County Sheriff Don Hunter (Ret.).
“We have a great deal of respect for Senator Rubio’s leadership style and vision for this country,” said Representative Passidomo. “He knows that limiting the size and scope of government immediately increases the success of the private sector. His endorsement is a very high honor to our campaign.”
