Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today announced its first round of endorsements for candidates running for the Florida Senate and House of Representatives for the 2020 Election Cycle.
“While the pandemic may have changed many things about campaigns this election cycle, it has not diminished the need for Floridians to understand candidates’ priorities and stances on important issues. For this reason, AIF felt it was important to continue our long-held tradition of reviewing and speaking at length with candidates so that we can help better inform the business community about who will fight for their interests,” said AIF President and CEO Tom Feeney.
“Today, we are proud to announce the first round of AIF’s 2020 endorsements for Florida Senate and House candidates running for election this November,” continued Feeney. “These candidates share many of the same values as hard-working entrepreneurs and we believe they are the best suited to help Florida’s business community recover and rebuild as our economy rebounds from this economic downturn.”
“As Election Day approaches, we encourage our fellow Floridians to support these AIF-endorsed Florida Senate and House candidates knowing they are committed to helping create an environment where Florida’s businesses can thrive and come back stronger than before,” concluded Feeney.
Associated Industries of Florida was formed 100 years ago to help foster business growth in Florida and to help identify pro-business- candidates who are running for the Florida Legislature.
