Congressman Scott Franklin today announced he has received the endorsement of Congressman Greg Steube for his re-election campaign.

Franklin currently represents FL-15. As part of congressional redistricting, Franklin resides in and seeks to represent the newly redrawn FL-18, which encompasses portions of Polk, Highlands, Hardee, DeSoto, Okeechobee, Glades, Hendry and Collier Counties.

“It has been my honor to serve the 15th District of Florida in Congress,” Rep. Franklin said. “While the new 18th District has expanded a bit from the area I currently represent, Polk County and the Florida Heartland is my home. It’s where I went to high school, joined the Navy, raised my family, and ran a successful business. I come from a long line of Georgia farmers with deep agriculture roots that give me a unique perspective on the new portions of FL-18. I’m proud to have the endorsement of my colleague Greg Steube, who has represented a large portion of this new district. Working together, we will continue to serve the people of Central Florida with distinction and honor.”
“I’ve been privileged to represent much of the new FL-18 during my tenure in Congress,” Rep. Steube said. “During his first term in Congress, Scott Franklin has worked hard on behalf of Floridians, fighting to preserve the Trump legacy and restore our traditional American values. I’m confident he will continue to uphold our conservative principles and I’m honored to endorse him for Congress.”
In Congress, Scott Franklin has voted to advance the agenda of President Donald Trump to Keep America Great. He is working to strengthen our economy by fighting reckless spending and cutting overreaching regulations that jeopardize our prosperity. He will push for an America First energy policy to expand domestic energy production and lower gas prices. He’s fighting to keep our borders secure. He will continue to defend the Second Amendment and fight for the unborn. Through Scott Franklin’s leadership in Washington, D.C., the citizens of Florida’s 18th Congressional District will be represented with the trust, respect, and integrity they deserve.
