Dr. Leo Valentin:
I’m incredibly excited to be the Republican nominee to take on Stephanie Murphy this fall.
Since the beginning we’ve said that the true divide lies between the powerful governing elite and hardworking families like yours and mine, not between party affiliations.
Unfortunately, Stephanie murphy has decided to represent the special interests of the D.C. swamp.
Stephanie Murphy went to Washington four years ago and has voted with Nancy Pelosi 94 percent of the time. She has pushed for taxpayer bailouts of corporate D.C. lobbyists and has failed to protect hardworking families and small businesses here in Central Florida.
We need innovation and a fresh perspective in congress now more than ever.
As a physician and C.E.O. of a hospital, I have the experience needed to get commonsense results for our district.
I’m ready to fight the career politicians, and as your congressman, I’ll protect local economies, strengthen our communities, and protect hardworking Floridians from an overbearing government.
We must ensure opportunities for generations to come. Together, we can do this. We can win this race. Because it is too critical, too important, for our country, our community, and our families.
So, thank you all for your support, and I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail!
