Mike Haridopolos endorses Scott Sturgill for Congress

Former Senate President Mike Haridopolos has endorsed small business owner, Scott Sturgill in his bid to be the next member of Congress from Florida's 7th District.

"Scott is exactly the kind of leader we need in Congress right now." said Haridopolos "He's a successful businessman with deep ties to his community with the talent to do a lot of great things for his district, while doing his part to fix a broken system in Washington."

Sturgill was grateful for the support.

"Mike Haridopolos was a champion for Floridians during his time in the state legislature and I'm grateful for his support." said Sturgill "The culture in Tallahassee and Washington is much different now with gridlock tying up the process to a point where lawmakers can't even pass a budget on time. When I'm in Congress, I'll put the interest of my constituents ahead of the special interest and do my part to fix a broken system."

Congressional District 7 is a Central Florida based district primarily situated in Seminole County, FL. The district covers all of Seminole County and a small portion of Orange County. Democrat freshman Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy unseated long time Republican Congressman John Mica narrowly in the 2016 General Election.

Scott Sturgill is a Sanford businessman and CEO of Durable Safety Products located in Seminole County. Sturgill is a fourth generation Seminole County native and serves on numerous charitable boards. Scott and his wife Tracy have married for 14 years and have two children.
