Americans for Prosperity Action Florida (AFP Action-FL) is backing Republican Carolina Amesty for House District 45.
The conservative advocacy group announced on Wednesday that Amesty would be its final state legislative candidate endorsement of the 2022 election cycle. Like other candidates of have been endorsed, AFP-FL says it stamped a seal of approval on Amesty for her commitment to policies that “limit government’s reach and create opportunities for Floridians to succeed.”
“When elected to the State House, Carolina Amesty will be a champion of policies that empower Florida parents with more education options to better meet the individual learning needs of their children,” said AFP Action-FL Senior Advisor Skylar Zander. “Amesty will support universal education savings accounts and policies to expand charter schools.”
“She also understands that inflation is an additional tax on hardworking Floridians, reducing their purchasing power as prices soar,” he added. “Amesty is committed to easing that burden through lower taxes and a reformed tax code that attracts new and better-paying jobs to our state.”
Amesty won HD 45’s Republican Primary in August, fending off four well-funded challengers and capturing over 45 percent of the vote.
Amesty earned degrees in undergraduate studies in political science and graduate studies in international relations. She is currently the vice president at Central Christian University and serves as a board member for Chaplains of Florida, American Chaplains, and Central Christian Academy. She is also a local business owner.
In a news release, Amesty said she will support fiscally responsible spending and regulatory reforms to eliminate unnecessary and burdensome regulations that limit economic growth and opportunities.
“AFP Action will be working hard during the final weeks leading up to Election Day to get the word out about candidates, like Amesty, who will support policies that help keep Florida economically strong and prosperous,” added Zander. “These policies are needed now more than ever as Floridians work to rebuild following the devastation of Hurricane Ian.”
Amesty will face Democrat and diversity consultant Allie Lee Braswell in November.
HD 45, one of the most diverse in the state, encompasses southwestern Orange County, including Walt Disney World, Windermere, and Winter Garden.
