Brandon, Fla.- The Tom Lee campaign announced that Congressman Dennis Ross has endorsed Tom Lee for Florida Senate in District 24.
“While I served in the Florida House, Tom Lee proved to be an outstanding leader. He never forgot his deep roots in Hillsborough County as a longtime Brandon-area resident. Alongside Jeb Bush and my Speaker Allan Bense, Tom took the reins of a bold, yet commonsense conservative agenda that aimed to improve the quality of life for families and job-creators in his community. He was a solid, homegrown conservative leader then, and he’ll be that same leader again.
“As South Hillsborough County’s Congressman, I know from that experience that if Tom Lee goes to Tallahassee as its next Senator, our constituents will be in the best of hands. I’m excited to see Tom running for Senate, and he has my full endorsement.”
Republican Tom Lee served as President of the Florida Senate from 2005-2006, where he worked alongside Governor Jeb Bush to deliver comprehensive litigation reform and pass historic improvements to Florida’s campaign finance and government ethics laws. A resident of Hillsborough County for over 40 years and graduate of Hillsborough Community College and the University of Tampa, Tom lives in Brandon with his wife Laurel Moore Lee, an Assistant United States Attorney for the Middle District of Florida. He is running for the State Senate in District 24, a district that includes the eastern portion of Hillsborough County.
