Republican congressional candidate Tom Rooney, has picked up the endorsement of the relatively new Vets for Freedom, a group of former military personnel who served in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars.
Taking aim at U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney, the incumbent in the 16th Congressional District, Hegseth said, “The current representative of Florida’s 16th District not only voted on multiple occasions to set a timetable for retreat from Iraq, but after visiting Iraq continued to deny the progress that the new strategy has made possible. Clearly he does not recognize the threats that our country faces - Tom Rooney is the answer to this inherent weakness in Congress, and I am proud to offer the support of Vets for Freedom.”
