Nokomis, FL – Today, businessman, former prosecutor, and Republican Party leader, Richard DeNapoli, announced the endorsement of State Representative Neil Combee.

In endorsing Richard, Representative Combee said,

Responsible, long term financial choices are upon us in Florida.  From expanding access to health care to energy to small business development, the Florida Legislature needs people, like Richard DeNapoli, who know the rigors of running a business, the impact of government on jobs, and the need to plan ahead.  Richard also knows, better than most, the true work that goes into building a party and support for a cause.  His service as party chairman puts Richard on the pulse of the grassroots in Florida and his insights into growing our State and growing our party will be invaluable.” 

Upon receiving his support, Richard DeNapoli said

To have the support of such a principled and honorable conservative like Representative Neil Combee, is truly an honor.  Neil knows what it is like to run a business and face the burden of nonsensical or outdated government regulations. He also knows that, in business, you have to plan ahead, prioritize, and sometimes, no always get what you want, but work to ensure you have what you need.  I will look to him and his experience and leadership and thank him for his endorsement and support.”

The Race to Succeed Term Limited Republican Doug Holder

Sarasota Herald-Tribune, October 12, 2013.

The contest to replace term-limited Republican Rep. Doug Holder in a Venice-area state House seat is shaping up to be a major showdown, with attorney Richard DeNapoli kicking in $150,000 of his own money in the fundraising quarter that ended Sept. 30.

The personal contribution allowed DeNapoli to surge past well-connected Venice orthopedic surgeon Julio Gonzalez in total cash raised. DeNapoli now has $183,840 compared with $120,361 for Gonzalez.

Both men are Republicans in a conservative district that is likely to be decided in the primary.

“I’m making the investment in the campaign and I’m in it to win it,” DeNapoli said Friday after the third quarter fundraising totals were reported.

DeNapoli served as chairman of the Republican Party of Broward County before moving earlier this year to Nokomis, where he practices estate planning and trust law. He entered the House race in August and already has made some important connections. State Rep. Ray Pilon, R-Sarasota, is endorsing the candidate.
