“Tonight I want to congratulate all of our Republican candidates across the state on their primary election victories. Tonight’s results show the clear and strong position we are in heading into November, a result of sound economic and education policies that have put over 620,000 Floridians back to work and increased K-12 funding to record levels.
I also want to congratulate President Gaetz, Speaker Weatherford, President-Designate Gardiner, and Speaker-Designate Crisafulli on their success tonight. Their leadership is unmatched, as evidenced by majorities in both legislative chambers and the success of the 2014 legislative session which returned $500 million back to Floridians.
I am confident we will continue on this same path for the next four years with the leadership of Governor Scott, Attorney General Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Atwater, and Commissioner Putnam.”
