Conservative Leader John Stemberger Backs Jeff Kottkamp for AG
John Stemberger, president and general counsel of the Florida Family Policy Council, endorsed Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp for attorney general on Tuesday.
“Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp is a man of sincere faith with strong family values,” said Stemberger. “Lieutenant Governor Kottkamp is a lifelong conservative Republican we can trust. He has a consistent and long history of voting pro-life and leading on the issue. Lieutenant Governor Kottkamp will also be clear on where he stands on all the issues of importance to Florida’s faith community and not dodge taking tough positions.”
Kottkamp used the opportunity to stress his conservative credentials on social issues -- important matters to conservative Republican primary voters looking to decide between Kottkamp and his rivals for the GOP nod, former Assistant State Attorney Pam Bondi and former Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Holly Benson.
“I am proud to be pro-life,” said Kottkamp. “As a legislator and lieutenant governor, I have also stood in support of traditional marriage. Protecting faith and family are cornerstones of my core beliefs and I’m proud to receive John Stemberger’s endorsement.”
