Republican Former U.S. Senator Puts His Support Behind Spritz
Matt Spritz announced today that Florida’s former United States Senator, Republican George LeMieux, has endorsed his campaign for State House.
“I proudly endorse Matt Spritz for State Representative,” said LeMieux. “Matt’s a natural leader, whose energy and commitment to community is refreshing. He’s not afraid to take on tough issues and understands that pro-business policies are absolutely critical to create more jobs for hard working Florida families.”
“I’m honored and grateful to have the support of Senator LeMieux,” said Spritz. “Senator LeMieux has a distinguished record of leadership and service, both in the public and private sector, fighting for our shared conservative principles and fiscal responsibility. His guidance will be a great asset to our campaign.”
LeMieux joins a growing number of current and former Republican elected officials, including former State Senator Ellyn Bogdanoff, State Representatives Byron Donalds, Randy Fine, Jason Fischer, Joe Gruters, Tom Leek, Bobby Payne, and Bob Rommel, and former State Representative Alex Miller, who have all also endorsed Spritz.
LeMieux served as Florida’s 34th United States Senator in the 111th Congress, and prior to that, served as Florida’s Deputy Attorney General. Senator LeMieux currently serves as the Chairman of the Gunster Law Firm and is the founder of the LeMieux Center for Public Policy at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
Born and raised in South Florida, Matt Spritz graduated Phi Beta Kappa with high honors from Emory University and from New York University School of Law in New York. He practiced corporate and business law in New York and later in South Florida before committing himself to public service in the Florida House.
