The Florida Retail Federation on Tuesday endorsed candidates in state legislative races, including three hopefuls running to represent Manatee County in Tallahassee.
Those endorsed include former Rep. Bill Galvano, who is running for the state Senate in District 26; and Reps. Jim Boyd and Greg Steube, who are running for re-election in House Districts 71 and 73, respectively.
“These individuals will be a strong voice for Florida’s retailers and the citizens of our state, and we are proud to endorse them,” said Florida retail Federation Executive Vice President Randy Miller. “Our mission is to promote legislative policies that will have a positive impact on the retail industry, one of Florida’s top job creating industries. Voters can be confident that these candidates will help our state economy grow and create more jobs for the people of Florida.”
