State Rep. Elizabeth Porter (R- Lake City)
State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith (R-Lecanto)  
Lopez-Cantera has built a grassroots driven campaign, with an unparalleled structure activated across the state.
“I continue to be humbled by the support from my colleagues from across the state. Here in Florida we know that the safety and security of our families is of the utmost importance, but if we continue business as usual in Washington, D.C. we risk losing the very essence of what made the United States of America the greatest country in the history of the world. I thank my friends for their support, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with them as we all make sure Florida’s proven success is represented in the U.S. Senate,” said Lopez-Cantera.
“Carlos is a tireless fighter for less government and has helped bring jobs and opportunity to Florida’s economy. As a business owner, I know how important it is to cut government red tape and ever increasing taxes and fees so that I can grow my business and provide more opportunities for employees. Carlos’ proven conservative principles are needed desperately in Washington right now, and I am proud to support my friend, Carlos, for the U.S. Senate,” said State Rep. Magar.
"Working with Carlos Lopez-Cantera in Tallahassee has given me the chance to get to know him as a leader and as a friend. I know that the same values that made him an effective representative of the people in Tallahassee will make him excellent advocate for all Floridians in Washington,” said State Rep. Ingram.
"Carlos is one of the hardest workers I know, putting Florida values first and always. He has done a tremendous job of traveling the state to bring jobs to Florida, and has always stepped up to support the Panhandle. I am proud to endorse my friend, Carlos Lopez-Cantera, because he is a proven Florida leader who is needed in Washington's dysfunction," said State Rep. Drake. 
“It was an honor to serve in the legislature with Carlos where he was always someone who led on conservative issues. As a former Executive Director of the Florida Christian Coalition Former and former Speaker Pro Tempore of the Florida House it is important we send someone who will be a champion of issues that Washington has often tried to run away from such as defunding Planned Parenthood. Too often, we send people to Washington who forget who they are representing and where they came from. Carlos' priorities are and always have been with Florida first, and we need that now more than ever,” said State Rep. Baxley.

“Floridians know that when Washington is out of their wallets, our state is a more prosperous place. Carlos will bring that message to Washington loud and clear. I know he is not afraid of the tough fights, and his proven leadership in the legislature is a testament to his ability to get the job done,” said Rep. Elizabeth Porter.

"As Lieutenant Governor of our great state of Florida, Carlos Lopez-Cantera exemplifies what it means to be an outstanding public servant. Carlos possesses the experience and intuitive skills that will shape public policy and make him a true leader up in Washington,” said State Rep. Perry.
"Carlos is a brass-tax, bare knuckles, do the job kind of leader and that is what I want in office,” said State Rep. Smith.
"I served with Carlos in the Florida House when he was the Majority Leader. He represents the next generation of leadership in Florida. He is conservative. He is principled. And he has my support,” said State Rep. Caldwell.
"Carlos knows how important the agriculture and fishing industries are not only to the Panhandle, but also to Florida's economy as a whole. His passion for standing up for Floridians all across the state is clear, and I am proudly endorsing Carlos for the U.S. Senate. We need his ability to cut through bureaucracy to achieve results, and we need that more than ever in the political mess that is Washington, D.C.," said State Rep. Beshear
Lopez-Cantera has activated an extensive coalition across the state as he meets with Floridians who are ready to elect a Constitutional conservative to the U.S. Senate. These leaders will continue to work to promote the conservative principles Lopez-Cantera stands for.
