Dick Armey Backs Bill McCollum
This morning, former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey, now chairman of FreedomWorks, announced he was backing Attorney General Bill McCollums bid to become the next governor of Florida.
With Rick Scott posing a serious challenge to the attorney general for the Republican nomination, Armey went out of his way to reinforce McCollums conservative credentials.
In the Florida race for governor, no one has done more to further the cause of conservatism than Bill McCollum, said Armey. I was proud to have Bill as part of my leadership team when we wrote the Contract with America, and I look forward to him serving as Floridas next governor.
Bill McCollum was tea party long before there were tea parties opposing President Obamas big government agenda and long before he was leading our efforts to repeal the new health-care laws intrusive individual mandate, continued Armey. Our nation needs strong conservative governors, and as governor, Bill McCollum will provide the conservative leadership we need to turn our nation around.
Congressman Armey has a tremendous record of principled conservative leadership as the former Republican House majority leader, said McCollum. I am grateful to Congressman Armey for embracing my vision to create more jobs for more Floridians without expanding government.
