Today, the Bob Cortes Campaign announced the endorsement of BusinessForce, a business group that endorses candidates who support the free enterprise system and sound, responsible business practices in government. Cortes is seeking re-election to the District 30 seat in the Florida House of Representatives. He has held the seat since 2014.

“Bob has been a fighter for business and he is always available to discuss any issue,” said Craig Swygert, Chairman of the Board of BusinessForce. “He knows the importance of a free economy and will always fight for it.”

BusinessForce is an independent, nonpartisan organization made up of regional business and community leaders representing thousands of businesses and tens of thousands of employees interested in promoting a pro-business environment. Since its creation in 1998, more than 80 percent of BusinessForce-endorsed candidates have won their elections.

“I’m proud to receive BusinessForce’s support,” said Cortes. “As a small business owner, I appreciate their support of our business community, and I look forward to working with them to make sure we maintain an economic climate that allows free enterprise to flourish.”
