Today, the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) endorsed María Elvira Salazar for re-election to represent Florida’s 27th Congressional district. The endorsement was based on the recommendation of their member organization, the Florida Police Benevolent Association.
“On behalf of the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO), I am very pleased to formally announce NAPO’s endorsement of [Rep. Salazar’s] re-election campaign for United States House of Representatives,” said Michael McHale, President of NAPO. “NAPO […] is confident [she] will continue [her] support of the law enforcement community in Congress.”
“The Democrats’ anti-police rhetoric has led to a major decline in police retention and even higher crime,” said Rep. Salazar. “As the daughter of Cuban exiles, I firmly support the rule of law and those who enforce it. Since coming to Congress, I’ve worked hard to support our law enforcement and provide them with the tools they need to make our communities safer. I’m proud to receive NAPO’s endorsement and look forward to continuing to work with our law enforcement to reduce crime here in Miami.”
Salazar has previously been endorsed by former United Nations Ambassador and Governor Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State and CIA director Mike Pompeo, and current U.S. Senator Tim Scott.
