Earlier this month, Casselberry Vice-Mayor Mark Busch launched his bid for the Republican nomination to run for the congressional seat held by U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla.
Murphy is expected to challenge U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., next year though she has not officially entered the race.
“Our group of supporters represents the heart of America from various cultural, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds,” said Busch. “The one thing we all share in common is the love for our country and most importantly, freedom. A big thank you to everyone who came out and those who donated that evening and in advance to support our cause.
“There is a culture war between freedom and Marxism, fighting for the heart and soul of America. I recognize the frustration of the majority of Americans fed up with the empty promises made by both major political parties. We need to elect principled representatives who understand the Founders’ view of natural rights, the proper role of government and common sense to get back in touch with the principles that made America exceptional and the freest country in human history,” he added.
Busch joins Jeremy Liggett and Cory Mills in the Republican primary.
