United States Senator Marco Rubio Endorses Mike Miller for Congress
Orlando, FL – Today, United States Senator Marco Rubio enthusiastically endorsed Mike Miller in his campaign to unseat Democratic incumbent, Stephanie Murphy, in Florida’s 7th Congressional District.
“I’m proud to announce my support for Mike Miller for Congress today,” said United States Senator Marco Rubio. “Jeanette and I have known Mike & Nora for many years, and like us, they are raising their children and serving in public office, all while balancing the same challenges Florida families do every day. Mike is a tireless advocate for Central Florida and will bring his conservative values to Washington and give me a great partner to work with in the Congress.”
“I am humbled to have the support of a champion for conservative values like Senator Rubio,” said Miller. “I admire his passion for issues impacting Florida families and his commitment to working across the aisle on important issues like human rights and foreign policy.”
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%.
“In Tallahassee I learned that working across the aisle doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your principles and I didn’t,” declared Miller. “I will bring the same principles to Washington,” he concluded.
Mike has fought tough battles in Tallahassee including balancing the state budget without tax or fee increases, improving public education by empowering parents and supporting the largest state education budget in state history, and supporting $1 billion in tax cuts for Floridians. Mike also reached across the aisle to work with Democrats and Republicans alike to oppose fracking in Florida and help address Orlando’s homeless problems.
