As we quickly approach the August primaries, businessman Scott Sturgill has snagged two major endorsements that will help him court Republican super-voters.

The Scott Sturgill campaign for Congress sent out a double-feature press release, touting the backing of the Central Florida Police Benevolent Association and Gun Owners of America.
Sturgill has carved out his place in the GOP primary as the law and order candidate, having previously been endorsed by Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma, Former Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary, and former law enforcement professional/former member of the US House of Representatives, Sandy Adams.
“It’s an honor to receive the PBA’s endorsement,” said Sturgill. “Our law enforcement professionals keep us safe every day and are an essential part of our community’s leadership.”
Gun Owners of America said they were “thrilled” to get behind the Sanford businessman.
“We’re thrilled to endorse Scott Sturgill in this race,” said Tim Macy, Chairman of GOA. “He is a true conservative dedicated to preserving our Second Amendment rights- the exact type of guy we need in Washington.”
Sturgill gained national attention last week after releasing an ad titled “Steakhouse Stephanie”, exposing Democratic incumbent Stephanie Murphy’s pricey DC fundraiser during Hurricane Irma in 2017.
Murphy famously denied to answer our questions face-to-face and even successfully petitioned FB to scrub the encounter from the platform.
