Chairman, Pinellas County Republican Executive Committee

“Romney’s background is creating business, creating jobs. He’s an executive and he’s a businessman…Throughout his career, every time he touched something, it turned out to be successful. I’m a small businessman, self-made... I started unloading trucks at Sears, and I now have a $50 million real estate company... so I believe in individualism and I truly believe in the American entrepreneurship that will drive the economy and not the government.”
