Haridopolos Endorses Huckabee

Gov. Mike Huckabee received the endorsement of State Senator Mike Haridopolos tonight at the fundraiser event in Miami. Here is the press release from the campaign:

Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee will receive the endorsement of Florida State Senator Mike Haridopolos this evening while attending a fundraising event in Miami.

"Senator Haridopolos is a great legislator for the state of Florida and I value his work as a long-time advocate for tax reform," Governor Huckabee said. "He is a great addition to my Florida team and I am thrilled to receive his endorsement as I look forward to campaigning throughout the state."

Senator Haridopolos was elected to the Senate in 2003, and re-elected in 2006. He currently serves as Majority Whip and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance and Tax. Haridopolos also served in the Florida House of Representatives from 2000-2003 and is a Co-Founder of the legislatures Freedom Caucus, which led the effort against tax increases proposed during the 2002 session.

"I support Mike Huckabee because of his positive, optimistic message," Senator Haridopolos said. "He, better than any candidate on either side, is listening to the voter and projecting a message that communicates with all Americans."

Governor Huckabee has been ramping up efforts in Florida leading up to the states primary on January 29. He recently announced the endorsements of Florida Speaker of the House Marco Rubio and State Senate Majority Leader Daniel Webster, both of whom now serve as Florida State Co-Chairs for the Huckabee campaign.
