Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos’ campaign for the GOP nod to try to topple Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson continues to gain steam, this time with the endorsement of Sunshine State CFO Jeff Atwater.
Haridopolos, who picked up the endorsement of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee last week, is "the proven fiscal conservative in this race with a strong record of restraining and reforming government that is badly needed in Washington," Atwater said in a statement.
"While others may talk the talk, Mike has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to tackle the tough issues and walk the walk . . . I am confident that he is the candidate that will defeat Bill Nelson," said Atwater, who announced his endorsement during a joint appearance at the Florida Republican Party's quarterly meeting in Orlando during the weekend.
