Punta Gorda, FL – U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL) today announced the endorsement of The Tampa Tribune for his reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Rep. Tom Rooney is a new face in Hillsborough politics, but he already has established himself as an up-and-coming conservative lawmaker representing a South Florida district since 2008,” the Tribune editorial board wrote.
“Rooney's approach is more market-oriented. He served in the Army as a lawyer and once taught constitutional law at West Point . . . At 41, Rooney is the youngest member of the House Intelligence Committee. He heads the Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry, highly relevant fields in Florida's heartland.
“. . . Rooney puts a priority on veterans' issues, among them his complaint that adequate treatment has not been available for many combat veterans returning home with mental health problems . . . He may be new to Hillsborough, but we expect voters who get to know him will appreciate Rooney's experience and sensible priorities. In District 17, the Tribune endorses Tom Rooney.”
