Dave Weldon got his first endorsement in the Senate primary today when Citizens United Political Victory Fund announced its support for the former congressman. The PAC of the conservative organization also contributed $10,000 total to Weldon – $5,000 each for the primary and general,
”Dr. Dave Weldon is a Christian conservative who has been a champion of the conservative movement for decades,” David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, said in a statement. “Conservatives in Florida deserve a candidate who can go toe to toe with Bill Nelson and defeat him in November – now they finally have one in Dr. Dave Weldon. Connie Mack is a puppet of the establishment who does not have the high moral caliber that Dr. Weldon displays every day. I urge all conservative Republicans in Florida to support Dr. Dave Weldon in the upcoming primary because he will be a U.S. Senator they can be proud of who will never let them down.”
Weldon said he was honored to receive the endorsement of Citizens United, saying “momentum is truly growing for this campaign.”
“Groups like Citizens United know that while I was in Congress, we were able to balance the budget, reform the welfare program – and still create a surplus. And my time as a doctor in the private sector has opened my eyes to where this country is headed because of Obamacare,” Weldon said.
