Fresh off a successful fundraiser with Sarah Palin, Lizbeth Benacquisto was endorsed by another national political figure, former governor Mike Huckabee.
Huckabee posted support for Benacquisto on Facebook Monday, calling her “the strongest conservative” in Florida’s Congressional District 19 race.
“I am honored to have Governor Huckabee’s support and grateful for his recognition that the hardworking families in Southwest Florida have a proven advocate in me,” Benacquisto responded.
Statement from Governor Mike Huckabee:
“We are in a fight to preserve our shared conservative values and we need proven warriors like Lizbeth Benacquisto to win that battle. To all our friends in Florida’s 19th Congressional District headed to the polls on April 22nd, I need you to join me in supporting the strongest conservative in the race – Lizbeth Benacquisto.
“You can’t argue with Lizbeth’s proven conservative credentials. She’s a fiscal hawk whose cut taxes, balanced the budget and reduced job-killing regulations in Florida and I know she can cut through the noise and do the same in Washington. Lizbeth’s fought to protect Life and end the scourge of abortion, she’s been a fierce advocate for Florida’s seniors and Veterans, and she has helped lead the fight to crack down on child predators.
“The people of Southwest Florida and across this great nation deserve a conservative leader like Lizbeth Benacquisto in the Congress. Please join me in supporting Lizbeth Benacquisto for Congress and ask your friends and family across the 19th Congressional District to do the same!”
