Business group gives 'dual endorsement' to Guccione, Steube

Florida House candidate Jeremiah Guccione this morning sent out an e-mail touting his endorsement from the Associated Industries of Florida.

"I am very proud to have the support of AIF. As the only candidate running for District 67 who has ever created a job, met a payroll, or run a business, I will work with the Associated Industries of Florida to put Floridians back to work" Guccione said.

Well, a check of the AIF Web site reveals the group also endorsed one of Guccione's rivals for the District 67 seat, fellow Republican Greg Steube. The group labeled its action as a "dual endorsement," presumably meaning that either one is better than the third candidate in Aug. 24 GOP primary, Robert McCann.

Earlier, Steube was endorsed by another prominent business group, the Florida Chamber of Commerce.

"I am honored to have the support and endorsement of the largest business organization in the state. I look forward to working with the Florida Chamber to promote sound policy for small business growth and economic development," Steube said.
