Rich Nugent and Dennis Ross Back Sandy Adams Over John Mica
U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams is battling U.S. Rep. John Mica in the Republican primary next Tuesday for a congressional seat in Central Florida. On Tuesday, Adams unveiled the support of two fellow congressional freshmen from the Sunshine State -- U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent and U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross.
While both Nugent and Ross praised Adams, neither of them took aim at Mica on Tuesday.
“Sandy and I agree that the American people aren’t particularly well-served by individuals who stay in Congress for decades on end,” Nugent said. “Sandy was one of the first people to walk the walk and co-sponsor my bill: the Congress Isn’t a Career Act. She sticks by her principles. She’s not going to say one thing and do another. I respect that and I think, at this point, that is exactly the kind of leadership that the country needs.”
“I've known Sandy Adams for over a decade,” Ross said. “Personally, professionally and politically, there is no one who will fight harder for what is right than she will. Sandy is a reformer, unafraid to ruffle feathers or take on tough issues. In Congress, Sandy's conservative record speaks for itself. In a time of record deficits and unemployment, Washington needs people who will do what is right, not what is easy. That person is Sandy Adams. I am proud to call her a friend, honored to call her a colleague, and wholeheartedly endorse her in her re-election.”
