Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is endorsing conservative blogger Javier Manjarres in the Republican primary for a Palm Beach-Broward congressional seat.

Javier Manjarres

“I have known Javier for many years and can attest to his indisputable commitment to preserving our American way of life. He is one of the strongest conservatives on the political playing field today, and I am confident that when elected to the U.S. Congress, his unique approach of addressing issues facing our nation will serve his constituents – and all Americans well,” Bondi said in a statement released by Manjarres’ campaign today.

Manjarres is running against Nicolas Kimaz and Eddison Walters in the GOP primary for heavily Democratic congressional District 22, the seat held by U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton.

Deutch faces a primary challenge from Jeff Fandl.

Manjarres released this statement on Bondi’s endorsement: “I appreciate the support that Attorney General Bondi has extended to my congressional campaign. I am proud of the work she has done for our state, especially her ongoing effort to eradicate the opioid epidemic, and her support for President Trump‘s pro-American agenda.”
