Trump Florida Chairman Gruters Endorses Mike Miller for Congress
March 19, 2018 (Orlando, FL) – Today, State Representative and President Trump’s Florida Chairman, Joe Gruters, enthusiastically endorsed Mike Miller for Congress in his campaign to unseat Democratic incumbent, Stephanie Murphy, in Florida’s 7th Congressional District.
“I have worked alongside Mike in Tallahassee and know he is one of the most hardworking conservatives we have,” Gruters said. “I am supporting his campaign because I know he will work with President Trump to protect our borders, ensure tax reforms, and bolster our military,” continued Gruters. “Mike has a proven track record of winning in razor-thin districts, so I believe he is the best choice to take on Cong. Murphy. I am looking forward to becoming involved in the campaign, not just helping him raise money, but engaging our grassroots supporters to help us flip this seat.”
“Joe is a good friend and a fellow conservative who knows how important it is that we take this seat back from the Pelosi Democrats,” added Miller. “I am honored to have his endorsement and thankful for his efforts on the campaign trail.”
Running for public office for the first time in 2014 in a district that was evenly divided Republican and Democrat, Mike was elected to the Florida House of Representatives by defeating the incumbent Democrat. In 2016, Mike handily defeated his Democratic opponent in a district where Hillary Clinton won by 12%.
