NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions Praises Adam Hasner
Former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner -- who dropped out of the Republican U.S. Senate primary last week to run for Congress -- has garnered the attention of national party leaders, including U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.
"We've been actively working with Adam to recruit him to run in the new 22nd Congressional District and I applaud his decision to accept this challenge,” Sessions said in a statement. “Adam represented Palm Beach and Broward counties during his eight-year tenure in the Florida House, and voters in the proposed 22nd Congressional District know him as a principled and conservative leader who always puts his constituents first.
"Adam has a strong record of success in this new district, and I know he has the will to win it,” added Sessions. “Now that he has announced his candidacy, he'll have the opportunity to enroll in the NRCC's Young Guns program and put his campaign on a path to victory. We look forward to working with Adam to ensure the proposed 22nd District continues to have a Republican representative who will fight for lower taxes and a more-limited federal government."
