Conservative Amanda Makki has surpassed $1 million in total contributions raised in her campaign to flip Florida’s 13th Congressional District, setting the stage for a real head to head fight against Charlie Crist in November.
In addition to her previous track record of strong financial support, Makki’s list of conservative endorsements and grassroot movement continues to flourish. Her recent endorsements come from esteemed U.S. Armed Forces veterans including Senator Joni Ernst, the first female combat veteran ever elected to the United States Senate. Other honored veterans’ supporters include Congressmen Michael Waltz (Lt. Colonel), Congressman Neal Dunn (Major), and Combat veteran Robert O’Neill of the elite Navy SEAL team 6, who shot Osama bin Laden.
“My team and I are grateful for all the support that our campaign has received. Over a year ago, we led the way to bring bold and effective conservative representation to Pinellas County and now we are full steam ahead,” said Makki. “For too long Charlie Crist hasn’t reflected the people of Pinellas. I remain committed now more than ever that we must have leadership in Washington who supports our President, defends our Constitution, and fights against socialism. I am the only candidate in the nation who can take on radicals like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tilab when I get to Congress.”
As the time-tested frontrunner candidate for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, Amanda Makki has also received the endorsements of House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican Whip Steve Scalise, Health Care Ranking Member and Physician Congressman Michael Burgess and the former Sheriff for the City of Jacksonville Congressman John Rutherford. Locally, Amanda has the support of Seminole City Councilor Thom Barnhorn, Belleair Beach Mayor Joseph Manzo and Treasure Island Commissioner Tyler Payne. She was named to the National Republican Campaign Committee’s Young Guns program as one of only 27 top “Contender” candidates in the nation.
Additionally, Amanda has received over 20 major endorsements including the Conservative groups FreedomWorks, Republican Main Street Partnership PAC, and Maverick PAC as well as groups supporting the strongest female candidates in the U.S. including VIEW PAC, Maggie’s List, and Rep. Elise Stefanik’s E‐PAC, that help female GOP candidates. She is also supported by the American College of Emergency Physicians and Associated Builders & Contractors Florida Gulf Coast Chapter.
