Palm Coast, Fla. – Among family, friends, supporters and volunteers at his Primary Election Night Watch Party, Republican Candidate Paul Renner emerged victorious in today’s Republican Primary in the special election for Florida House District 24.
“It has been a great privilege to meet so many members of our community during this campaign,” said Renner. “One thing is clear: Republican voters are looking for conservative leadership and that is what I intend to provide if elected on April 7, in the general election.”
“Separately, I want to extend thanks to our fellow Republican candidates, Ron Sanchez and Danielle Anderson,” said Renner. “A primary campaign is always a family affair and they both ran good, strong campaigns centered on ideas that we all share. Now that the primary is over, we have the opportunity to join together and promote those ideas in a united campaign against our general election opponent.”
“As we approach the general election, we will continue to share ideas with voters on how we can best promote economic growth and jobs, expand opportunity for everyone, and maintain and improve our great quality of life,” concluded Renner.
