STAATS’ CAMPAIGN PICKS UP BIG ENDORSEMENT FROM FLORIDA CONGRESSMANSeptember 20, 2012
The Brad Staats’ Campaign for the Fifth Congressional District announces an endorsement from a prominent Congressman from Florida. Congressman Steve Southerland announced his support for business owner Brad Staats, who is running against 23 year incumbent Jim Cooper. Congressman Southerland has been a leader representing residents of the Second District for North and Northwest Florida and also owns a local small business.
“We need more conservative champions in Congress who will put faith, family, and freedom first. I have known Brad Staats and his family for 35 years, and I’ve witnessed the strength of his character and the depth of his commitment to restoring America. By sending Brad to Washington, the people of Tennessee’s Fifth Congressional District will help us shake things up in Congress and get our nation back on the right track, “explained Congressman Southerland.
After receiving Congressman Southerland’s endorsement, Staats stated “I am honored and humbled by Congressman Southerland’s support and believe that the residents of the Fifth Congressional District do not deserve politics as usual, which has been going on the last four years. Our main focus needs to be getting people back to work, cutting big spending and keeping government away from our businesses and our lives.”
