Former President Donald Trump on Thursday endorsed Miami-Dade County Commissioner Kevin Marino Cabrera for Vice Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF).

Cabrera, a figure in Florida politics, has held roles including that of a lobbyist and a political operative. His past work includes affiliations with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and former U.S. Representative Carlos Curbelo. Cabrera was also part of Trump’s Florida team during the 2020 presidential campaign. The endorsement was delivered via Trump’s Truth Social platform.

In the endorsement, Trump described Cabrera as a committed conservative, ready to advance the party’s values and goals. The Former President previously backed Cabrera during his successful 2022 campaign for the Miami-Dade Commission.

“Kevin Marino Cabrera is a fearless America First Conservative who has demonstrated his dedication to the MAGA movement,” wrote Trump. “Kevin is running to be Vice Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, and is ready to go to work for our Conservative values and achieve even more victories for the Party. Kevin Cabrera has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Following the announcement, Cabrera issued a statement expressing his thanks for Trump’s endorsement and reiterating his dedication to the party’s objectives in Florida.

“I am honored by your support and confidence,” said Cabrera on X. “Your encouragement energizes our commitment to keeping Florida red this November. Together, we will Make America Great Again, Again!”

His candidacy for the has also garnered support from other prominent Republicans, including RPOF Chair Evan Power and U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz.

The endorsement comes in the wake of organizational changes within the RPOF, including the recent appointment of Power earlier this month as Chairman, succeeding Christian Ziegler.

Following Trump’s endorsement, Vice Chair candidate¬†Michael Thompson, who was backed by U.S. Representative Byron Donalds, promptly suspended his campaign.

“I would like to congratulate Kevin Cabrera and agree with President Trump that Kevin is a battle-tested America First Patriot and he has my full and total support,” Thompson said.
