Florida Retail Federation and Associated Industries of Florida Endorse Senator Rick Scott
Tampa, FL – Today, both the Florida Retail Federation and the Associated Industries of Florida announced their endorsement of Senator Rick Scott for re-election.
During the event, Senator Scott also discussed his focus on continuing to make sure Florida remains a pro-business state where Floridians can get a good paying job and provide for their families despite Joe Biden’s best efforts to cripple the economy with devastating inflation inducing policies.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of FRF and AIF. Since my time as Governor, and now as Senator, I have worked with these great organizations that are fighting for Florida businesses and workers. Florida’s economy thrives when industries, retailers, and small businesses thrive. As governor, I was proud that I could cut taxes every single year – more than 100 times – which saved families and businesses more than $10 billion. We were able to get that done because of groups like AIF and FRF. In the Senate, I am fighting to make it harder for politicians to raise taxes on families and trying to stop Joe Biden’s push for inflation inducing policies. Biden’s policies have driven up the cost on our retailers and businesses for things like gas, rent and critical goods and services. I look forward to working with both of these organizations to reverse what Biden has done to our economy.” – Senator Rick Scott
“AIF is proud to support U.S. Senator Rick Scott and endorse his re-election campaign. Throughout his time in office, Senator Scott has been a champion for Florida’s business community. In Washington, he has consistently advocated for limited government, free enterprise and policies that support job creation and promote economic growth. AIF is confident Senator Scott will continue to fight for the best interests of Florida’s job creators and ensure our state remains the best place to live and do business.” -Brewster Bevis, AIF President and CEO
“As Governor of Florida, Rick Scott was laser-focused on helping Florida get back to work after the Great Recession had crippled the Sunshine State’s economy. He cut taxes, eliminated burdensome regulations, and reduced unemployment to just 3%. He brings that same focus to Washington, where he’s cutting through the chaos to fight the devastating inflation that is debilitating for Florida families – and for Florida’s retail stores. The Florida Retail Federation is proud to support Senator Rick Scott for reelection.” – Scott Shalley, President & CEO of the Florida Retail Federation
