Emily Nunez, Navy and Marine Corps Veteran, Launches Bid for Florida’s 11th House District

The Jacksonville native announced on Tuesday in a statement that:

The Great President Ronald Reagan said it best when he stated that our country will be weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. It is time for real fighters to step up and answer the call. 

Time after time, we the people watch as Democrats slowly encroach on our constitutional freedoms such as our Second Amendment. Here in the state of Florida, with a Republican controlled House and Senate, Gun Rights bills get killed in Committees by RINOs while Gun Control bills get passed into law. It is time for those with the moral courage to stand up and fight for what is right. 

I am tired of the career politicians and insiders in Tallahassee who continually band together for personal gain. It’s time your wants and needs are properly represented. It’s time to drain the Tallahassee swamp. I have filed to be your next State Representative and to protect the rights of the people and oppose the unconstitutional mandates our government put into effect before.

Emily Nunez is a Jacksonville native and graduate of Nathan Bedford Forrest High School.
