(WINTER PARK, FL) Calling her “the best chance Florida has to elect a true conservative to Congress” California Congressman Brian Bilbray has endorsed Karen Diebel for Congress in Florida’s 24th District.

Bilbray has been lauded for his tough stance on illegal immigration and fight to cut both the size and scope of the federal government.

“This year Republicans have a real chance to change the way Washington operates. But we must be vigilant for candidates who embrace the mantle of conservatism but not the spirit or philosophy,” Bilbray said.

“Karen Diebel is a conservative at heart and in life. Her public service reflects a proven record of doing more with fewer tax dollars. She has taken a tough stand on illegal immigration and supports the second amendment and state’s rights. While others vacillate and shift with the winds of political expediency Karen never waivers.

Karen Diebel is rock solid. She is going to help bring real change to Congress,” Bilbray said.

 Diebel pointed to the similarities between Bilbray’s Southern California district and Florida in struggling with the illegal immigration issue.

“Brian’s district lies close to our border with Mexico. Florida is a major destination for illegal immigrants. We both see the devastating effects on our communities – the loss of American jobs, the burden on our health and educational systems, and the increased crime rates.

I will be proud to work side by side with Congressman Bilbray in Washington to make sure our conservative voice is heard,” Diebel said.

As an Executive Director at Verizon Business, Karen Diebel helps companies grow by ?nding solutions to complex technological challenges. She earned a spot on the Orlando Business Journal’s 2009 list of “Women Who Mean Business.”

Karen co-founded the N. Donald Diebel Jr. M.D. Good Samaritan Fund in 2004, in memory of her late husband. In partnership with Shephard’s Hope, the Dr. Diebel Jr. Memorial Health Center provides care for more than 2,000 men, women, and children annually. She is a member of St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Winter Park and a graduate of the University of Notre Dame (B.B.A., Finance).
Karen received her M.B.A. from the University of South Florida.
Karen lives in Winter Park with her three sons: Conor, age 13, Liam, age 12, and Nicholas, age 10.
