DeSantis endorses Leek for state Senate


Gov. Ron DeSantis has endorsed Republican state Rep. Tom Leek’s bid for Florida’s open Senate District 7 seat, which is currently held by Sen. Travis Hutson. Hutson is term-limited.

The Leek campaign made the announcement Monday.

“I’m happy to endorse Tom Leek, a proven conservative, for the Florida Senate,” said DeSantis. “In the Florida House, he has fought alongside us on the countless initiatives that have made Florida the freest state in the union. I look forward to continuing to work with him as District 7’s next senator.”

“To have the endorsement of Governor DeSantis in my campaign for the State Senate is truly an honor and is a great lift for our supporters as we qualify for the ballot next week,” said Leek. “Thank you, Governor, for your conservative leadership, and I eagerly look forward to continuing our important work in the Florida Legislature.”
