“I am pleased today to endorse Greg Steube for state representative,” Buchanan said. “Greg was born and raised in Manatee County and is extremely knowledgeable of the district and the district’s issues. He has distinguished himself by serving our country in the military and in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Greg would be a great leader for our area and its people.”

“I am pleased and humbled to receive the support of Congressman Vern Buchanan,” Steube said. “Congressman Buchanan represents a large majority of the district I hope to represent, and his support will help me better serve the citizens of District 67 if elected.”

In addition to Buchanan, Steube has garnered endorsements from incumbent Rep. Ron Reagan, state Sen. Michael Bennett, Rep. Bill Galvano, former state senators Pat Neal and John McKay, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee, Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight, Manatee County Sheriff Brad Steube, former Manatee County Sheriff Charlie Wells, County Commissioner Donna Hayes, County Commissioner Ron Getman and others.
