JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Today, the Jay Fant Campaign announced the endorsement of Rep. Halsey Beshears, the latest in a series of high profile endorsements pouring in for Jay Fant in the final days of the primary election cycle. Beshears represents the Seventh District of Florida and like Jay is a hard-working entrepreneur and a strong supporter of job creation.
“Jay believes in protecting our second amendment rights and he is a fiscal conservative who is focused on shrinking the government beast,” said Rep. Beshears. “Yet, most importantly, Jay is a grounded Christian family man who doesn’t need poll numbers or the media to tell him right from wrong.”
The primary election for House District 15 will conclude on Tuesday, August 26. Rep. Beshears is the third conservative legislator to endorse Fant this week, a strong indicator of Fant’s genuine conservative message.
