LARGO (FLV) – Congressman Byron Donalds endorsed Berny Jacques in the Republican primary to serve as state representative for House District 59.
“We need Conservatives like Berny Jacques representing us in the Florida House,” Donalds said. “Berny will fight for our 2nd Amendment, defend the unborn, and will stand up for our American values against the woke left. I strongly endorse Berny Jacques because he is a conservative we can trust to deliver results for Florida.”
Jacques served as an Assistant State Attorney for Florida’s Sixth Judicial Circuit. He is currently the Senior Director of Partnerships at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay. Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2020 appointed Jacques to the Sixth Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission.
“Congressman Donalds is a conservative champion who knows what it takes to deliver results in the State House and in Congress,” Jacques said. “It is an honor to have his support and you can guarantee I’ll take our shared conservative values to the State House.”
The race for House District 59 is a crowded field as several Republicans campaign to win the seat. The Republican primary is Aug. 23.
