Huckabee endorses Gaetz for Congress

The Matt Gaetz campaign today announced that former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has endorsed the Fort Walton Beach state lawmaker for Congress.

“I’ve seen a lot of people go to Washington promising to change it; instead, Washington changed them. I don’t worry about that with Matt Gaetz because if he gets elected to Congress, I think he will do what he has been doing all his political life – changing the institutions and challenging them,” Gov. Huckabee said.

“He’s been 100-percent consistent in his pro-life convictions. He’s supported our Second Amendment and defended it vigorously. He’s supported lower taxes and he’s also trying to get government off the backs of small businesses. Matt is just the kind of Congressman we desperately need to have in Washington representing our interests, not the special interests. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Matt Gaetz for Congress in Florida’s First Congressional District,” he stated.

In the press release, Gaetz said that he was excited to have Huckabee’s endorsement.

“Mike is a dear friend, conservative champion, faith leader, and resident of the First Congressional District. He understands first-hand the failures of Washington and the need to fight for bold conservative reforms to restore America,” he said.

“With Governor Huckabee’s endorsement, our high energy campaign continues to gain momentum. Fellow conservatives across Northwest Florida are excited about my campaign because they understand how important it is to defend the Second Amendment, stop illegal immigration, and defeat radical Muslim terrorists. I look forward to sharing my conservative message with voters as we knock doors, make calls, and talk to folks online in the final month of this campaign,” Gaetz said.
