The Mast for Congress campaign today announced that Florida gubernatorial candidate and Congressman Ron DeSantis has endorsed Congressman Brian Mast (FL-18) for re-election.
“Brian is an American patriot. Both on the battlefield and in Congress, he’s gone above and beyond the call of duty to defend the Constitution and our American values,” Rep. DeSantis said. “He’s never asked anything in return for his service, but with Nancy Pelosi funding his opponent, now is the time to rally behind him and show Nancy Pelosi that Florida can’t be bought!”
Congressmen Mast and DeSantis have worked together to address numerous issues for Florida and the country, including:
- H.J. Res. 6 – Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to limit the number of terms that a Member of Congress may serve
- H.R. 2712 – The Palestinian International Terrorism Support Prevention Act
- Calling for the creation of an Everglades Restoration Infrastructure Taskforce to “expedite and energize the federal government’s efforts to restore the Everglades”
Rep. Mast qualified by petition to appear on the ballot for re-election. To qualify by petition in FL-18, a candidate must have 5,110 verified signatures. Candidates who failed to secure the necessary support to get on the ballot through petition signatures were required to buy a spot on the ballot. The filing deadline was May 4, 2018.
