TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The McCollum Campaign for Governor announced former House Majority Leader and FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey has endorsed Bill McCollum in the Republican primary for Florida governor.

“Congressman Armey has a tremendous record of principled conservative leadership as the former Republican House majority leader. It was an honor to serve alongside him as we fought to return America to her principles of limited government, personal, and economic freedom,” said McCollum, who is the state's attorney general. “I am grateful to Congressman Armey for embracing my vision to create more jobs for more Floridians without expanding government.”

“In the Florida race for governor, no one has done more to further the cause of conservatism than Bill McCollum. I was proud to have Bill as part of my leadership team when we wrote the Contract with America and I look forward to him serving as Florida’s next governor,” Armey said. “Bill McCollum was ‘tea party’ long before there were tea parties opposing President Obama’s big government agenda and long before he was leading our efforts to repeal the new health care law’s intrusive individual mandate. Our nation needs strong conservative governors, and as governor, Bill McCollum will provide the conservative leadership we need to turn our nation around.”

As House majority leader, Armey served with Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich as they passed the Contract with America. Since 2003, Armey has served as chairman of FreedomWorks, which is a grass-roots network of volunteer activists fighting for the principles of less government, lower taxes, and more freedom.

As governor, McCollum will continue championing these principles and will implement a jobs plan that will create 500,000 jobs without increasing the size and scope of Florida’s government, the campaign's news release said.
