Republican candidate Carolina Amesty released her first campaign ad in her bid for House District 45.
In the 30-second spot, titled “Clear,” Amesty takes aim at the “radical agenda” being pushed by Democrats, contrasting liberal ideologies with conservatives viewpoints. She also touts Governor Ron DeSantis‘ leadership and the “America First” agenda that she notes they both embrace.
“This election, the choice is clear. Socialism or free markets? Illegal immigration or secure the border? Higher taxes or tax cuts? Joe Biden or Ron DeSantis? Liberals in Washington are pushing a radical agenda that doesn’t make sense,” Amesty says in the ad. “I’ll stand with Gov. DeSantis against woke corporations and against Joe Biden’s agenda. To protect our constitutional rights. Together, let’s make America Florida.”
Amesty, of Windermere, 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.
Since launching her bid for HD 45, Amesty has picked up endorsements from several lawmakers and local leaders. Those backing her campaign include State Senator Danny Burgess, State Representative Joe Harding, soccer star Aurélien Collin, Flagler County Chair Joe Mullins, Bertica Cabrera Morris, and a host of other local leaders.
Amesty is one of five well-funded GOP candidates squaring off in what appears to be the most competitive House district this cycle. Other Republicans eyeing the seat include former congressional candidates, Vennia Francois and Mike Zhao, businessman Bruno Portigliatti, and retired law enforcement officer Janet Frevola. The only Democrat that has filed to run is diversity consultant Allie Lee Braswell.
HD 45, one of the most diverse in the state, encompasses southwestern Orange County, including Walt Disney World, Windermere, and Winter Garden.
