After making his way from Panama City to Tallahassee to announce his Republican candidacy for Florida Congressional District 2, Panama City Surgeon and United States Army Veteran Neal Dunn today announced that former Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) has endorsed his candidacy.
“Neal Dunn is one of us here in North Florida,” said Senator Gaetz, who served as President of the Senate from 2012 to 2014. “In his own military career and the military service and sacrifices of his family, he personifies the values and needs of our retired military and the communities that host our bases and missions. In his distinguished career as a medical doctor caring for thousands of North Florida families, he knows firsthand the health care issues that affect our communities. In his successful business career, he faces the same struggles as the rest of us in meeting payroll, growing jobs and working through the maze of government regulation.”
Senator Gaetz continued, “Neal's life perfectly qualifies him to speak for North Florida and to fight for North Florida. He is a conservative with solutions that work. I am honored to support him for Congress.”
“I thank Senator Don Gaetz for his support of my campaign,” said Dr. Dunn. “North Florida is important to me – this is where I have practiced as a surgeon for the last 25 years and where my wife and I have raised our family. I am passionate about serving my home district and serving as an unapologetic conservative with specific ideas addressing three very important issues to me – health care, the economy and national security. I look forward to discussing these important issues on the campaign trail with my fellow neighbors.”
