Momentum continues building for Harding’s candidacy as he is the first
to qualify by petition and enjoys a sizable fundraising lead in the race.
Joe Harding today announced that he has qualified to be on the 2020 ballot by collecting more than the required number of petitions for State House District 22. Verification of these petitions has been published by the Florida Secretary of State. The Harding Campaign turned in 1,219 verified petitions, with nearly 500 from Levy County and over 700 from Marion. The even balance of support underlines his appeal throughout the district.
“We’re thrilled to have completed this part of the campaign early and with the enthusiasm of so many voters in the district,” said candidate Joe Harding. “We will not let up on the campaigning as we continue to meet voters and share our message of hope through economic freedom.”
The deadline to submit petitions is May 11; the Harding Campaign completed the process five months early. Harding’s opponent has not submitted any petitions to the Secretary of State, and Harding has a 36 percent lead on him in fundraising dollars.
Endorsements for Harding include the Gator Fire Council, the Professional Firefighters of Ocala, the Gainesville Professional Fire Fighters, Representative Stan McClain, the Levy County Firefighters, Levy County School Board member Ashley Clemenzi, Levy County Tax Collector Linda Fugate, Levy County Commission Vice Chair Matt Brooks, Williston Mayor Jerry Robinson, Belleview Mayor Christine Dobkowski, and the Marion County Firefighters.
