Secretary Pompeo Endorses Maria Elvira Salazar For Congress

Today, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo endorsed María Elvira Salazar for re-election to represent Florida’s 27th Congressional district.

“Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar has spent her life defending freedom and truth,” said Secretary Pompeo. “Rep. Salazar spent her career as a journalist holding the corrupt and powerful accountable. In just her first term, María has continued to do this representing the people of Florida’s 27th District. Born to Cuban-immigrant parents, she knows how valuable the American Dream is and I know she will continue to fight so that all Americans have the ability to achieve it. We need María fighting in Congress against the policies pushed by Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi – policies that benefit dictators and hurt Americans. I’m proud to endorse her for re-election!”

“70% of my constituents come from Latin America, many of them fleeing the horrors of socialism and communism,” said Rep. Salazar. “Under Secretary Pompeo’s leadership, America’s foreign policy held the dictators and purveyors of these horrors accountable. I am honored to have his support and am excited to work together: to protect the American Dream and to secure freedom, both here and abroad.”

María Elvira Salazar has previously been endorsed by former United Nations Ambassador and Governor Nikki Haley as well as current U.S. Senator Tim Scott.
