Robert Ehrlich Backs Gineen Bresso to Challenge Wasserman Schultz
Prominent Republicans from across the nation have rushed to South Florida to back potential opponents to challenge U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, best known for leading the Democratic National Committee, most of whom either endorsed Ozzie deFaria or Karen Harrington. But former Gov. Robert Ehrlich of Maryland endorsed yet another Republican in the race on Tuesday when he announced that he was backing attorney Gineen Bresso.
“It is a privilege to receive the endorsement of Governor Ehrlich in this important election,” said Bresso in a statement on Tuesday. “Working in Governor Ehrlich’s administration early in my career, I witnessed firsthand how fiscal discipline and a pro-growth approach can reduce unemployment and strengthen our economy. I am committed to bringing these values to Congress and I am delighted to have his support.”
“I am honored to endorse Gineen Bresso for Congress,” said Ehrlich. “Gineen represents the mix of experience and freshness that Congress needs during these challenging times. She is a tough, compassionate, hard-working advocate who will always put the citizens of Florida’s 23rd District first. They deserve a full-time member of Congress whose commitment to the job is beyond question. That is what they will get with Gineen.”
