Combined with his fundraising lead, incumbent Rep. Elizabeth Porter’s support
signals continued momentum for Vann’s campaign for House District 10.
The Marc Vann Campaign today announced the endorsement of Rep. Elizabeth Porter, who currently holds the District 10 seat Vann is seeking. Elected in 2010, Porter faces term limits this year. Vann is also leading his primary opponents in actual funds raised. He banked $5,125 in December and has raised a total of $24,750 since entering the race in October.
“Marc Vann is the right leader to continue to fight for District 10,” said Porter. “I have known Marc for years, and I have no doubt that his background and integrity make him the person we need to make sure our region is well represented in Tallahassee. He’s one of us, and he has a deep understanding of our area’s needs and our opportunities. Marc will go to bat for us in the Florida House.”
During the 2018 legislative session that is currently underway, Porter is serving as Chair of the Post-Secondary Education Subcommittee. She also sits on the House Appropriations and Education Committees.
“Elizabeth Porter is a highly respected leader in the Florida House,” said Vann. “I’m honored to have her support, and I look forward to continuing the high standard of public service she set for District 10.”
Vann is a lifelong Lake City resident and the co-owner of Vann Carpet One. He is running on a conservative platform of growing the North Central Florida jobs base, reducing the size of government, and increasing local control of education. He and his wife, Sheree, have four children and eight grandchildren.
District 10 includes Baker, Columbia, Hamilton, and Suwannee Counties and part of Alachua County.
