From a press release:

Republican Majority Leader Carlos Lopez-Cantera Endorses Adam Hasner For U.S. Senate

Boca Raton, FL - Florida House Republican Majority Leader Carlos-Lopez Cantera today announced his endorsement of Adam Hasner for United States Senate.

"As a small business owner, husband and a father, I'm deeply concerned about the direction of our country and the lack of leadership we see from both parties in Washington. Without a doubt, Adam Hasner is the only candidate Florida Republicans can trust to go to Washington and stand firm for the kind of limited government reforms needed to turn our country around," said Lopez-Cantera. "Having served alongside Adam, I witnessed firsthand his consistent dedication to the mainstream conservative principles of our party, even when they weren't popular. It's time for Florida Republicans to start to unite behind his campaign, so we can begin to focus our attention on winning back the United States Senate and defeating the Obama-Reid-Pelosi agenda."

"Carlos is an outstanding public servant and a champion for taxpayers, small businesses and free markets," said Adam Hasner. "I'm proud to have Carlos on my team, and look forward to working with him to build a winning grassroots campaign in Miami-Dade County."

Lopez-Cantera joins Dennis Baxley, Scott Plakon, FreedomWorks, Concerned Women for America, American Future Fund, Mark Levin, Erick Erickson, Monica Crowley, Ken Blackwell, and Joyce Kaufman in endorsing Adam's campaign for the United States Senate.
