Republican Erick Aguilar announced that SEAL PAC has endorsed his campaign for Florida’s 4th Congressional District.
The organization, led by former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, backed Aguilar in the Republican primary for Florida’s newly drawn district this week. In a press release, Zinke, a retired Navy Seal who also serves as chairman of the political action committee that supports conservative veterans, lauded Aguilar’s “America First” foundation and willingness to fight back against policies pushed by the political left.
“The Democrat’s extreme agenda is out of control, and it is up to candidates like Erick to take our country back, flip the House, and Save America”, said Zinke. “Erick and I share the same belief that America’s best days are still ahead – we just need proven veteran leaders to lead that charge, which is why SEAL PAC and I are endorsing Erick for Congress.”
Aguilar, a Navy veteran, kickstarted his bid for CD 4 last month, touting that his campaign has banked over $1 million, with an additional $812,000 cash on hand. In a statement, Aguilar thanked SEAL PAC and Zinke, who is also running for Congress in Montana, for backing his campaign.
“It is a true honor to receive the endorsement from SEAL PAC,” added Aguilar. “Like Ryan and others, I cannot sit idly by and let our government go unchecked by radical Democrats. Over 20 years ago, I took an oath to serve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States when I joined the US Navy. The fight for freedom never ends and that call to servant leadership is needed now more than ever. I am excited to work with my brothers and sisters in arms over the next several months to win our country back and Save America!”
Aguilar was the first GOP candidate to declare for CD 4, which includes Nassau, Clay, and Duval County areas north and west of the St. Johns River. The only other Republican to enter the race is state Representative Jason Fischer.
