Javier Manjarres, Republican candidate for the U.S Congress District 22 seat, just landed another big endorsement. The Manjarres campaign announced the support of U.S Senator Marco Rubio. Manjarres, a longtime supporter of Sen. Rubio, hopes to unseat Congressman Ted Deutch (D-Backbencher).
“Javier’s unwavering support for the Constitution, especially his support for the 1st & 2nd Amendments and his steadfast support for the life of unborn children, makes him uniquely qualified to represent Florida’s 22nd District in Congress.
I look forward to working with Javier to introduce and pass meaningful legislation that will continue on the winning pro-American pathway our great nation is currently on.” – Senator Marco Rubio
Last Wednesday, Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) Chairman Robert Sutton met with White House officials to discuss how local Republicans can help further the agenda of President Donald Trump. The delegation included Sutton, his wife Teresa, BREC Vice Chair Celeste Ellich, SWBRO President Jay Narang and Republican Party of Florida Director of Party Development Brooke Renney. (This reporter also attended the meeting with The White House Office of Political Affairs). In addition to the meetings, the Broward delegation received tours of The White House, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the Rayburn House Office Building, the Longworth House Office Building, and the U.S. Capitol Building.
With the assistance of Senator Marco Rubio, Congressman Brian Mast and Congressman Ron DeSantis, the Broward Republicans were able to watch the U.S. Senate debate the repeal of Obamacare from the Senate gallery. From the House of Representatives gallery, members of the Broward delegation witnessed Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Out Of Touch) declare her opposition to an important defense spending bill. But the real highlight of the trip came when First Lady Melania Trump greeted Chairman Sutton and the other Broward Republicans. You can view highlights of trip by clicking here.
The Donald Trump campaign opened its first Broward office on Saturday afternoon. The new digs are located at 800 South Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. Broward Trump Campaign chair Dolly Rump welcomed nearly 100 volunteers for refreshments after a morning of door-knocking and sign waving.
Broward Republican Party Chairman Robert Sutton talked to True Broward TV about the opening of the office and yesterday’s Sen Marco Rubio event at Wings Plus in Coral Springs.
