Allen Ellison to Retire Marco Rubio

5 mins read

Allen Ellison has announced that he will run for the United States Senate to represent the great State of Florida. The seat is currently being held by Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

Here is a full transcript of Ellison’s announcement that was sent to media outlets:

“I know that this has been a tough year for all of us. We have faced a global health crisis which has claimed the lives of our loved ones, resulted in skyrocketing unemployment, social unrest and a failing economy that has rendered thousands homeless.

Florida, like the rest of the nation, has seen its fair share of unemployment, rising COVID-19 cases, deaths, and social division.

We have watched career politicians stand by and do absolutely nothing for our people. We have watched them fill this nation with hate through their divisive rhetoric, and we have watched them line their pockets at the expense of the American people, while our fellow citizens struggle to make ends meet. I say enough is enough.

We are in desperate need for visionary leaders with fresh ideas who care about the issues that matter to all of us.

It is an astounding and horrible fact that between 18 to 22 military veterans commit suicide every day. The causes for this tragedy are typically depression fueled by PTSD, survivor’s guilt, or low self-esteem due to unpreparedness for civilian life. We must support our veterans and end this crisis.

Of the 61 million Americans living in the United States with a disability, there are 2.6 million living right here in Florida. Some leaders are trying to reduce your monthly benefits, while many Americans that have been deemed disabled by a physician are being denied year after year. This is not right, and we need positive change on this issue.

My vision for our future is centered around improving the quality of life for all citizens. This means protecting social security, healthcare, the rights of women, veterans care, increasing disability benefits, making improvements to infrastructure and our educational system. It means creating good paying jobs, sustainable agricultural development and green solutions for a stronger, cleaner and safer environment for everyone to enjoy. It means bringing families back together and healing the social divide while conquering this pandemic.

What we need is a new, comprehensive American Recovery Plan that does not hurt everyday people. In this race to become Florida’s newest voice in Washington, I would like my constituents to know that I am the strongest candidate on protecting the environment, the only candidate that has a platform to improve the quality of life for all American citizens, and the only candidate that cares about increasing benefits for seniors and people living with disabilities. America has the oldest written constitution on Earth. It is a brilliant and beautifully written document that defines our democratic process and way of life.

The framers of our constitution sought to create a more perfect union. They knew that we would be strongest in that endeavor, working together with democracy at the foundation of our nation.

For the love of our nation, and the desire to see a more united Florida, I am humbled and honored to announce that I am running for the United States Senate to represent your interests in our Congress. I will fight to uphold our democracy while working to make life better for everyone. If you want a leader who will fight to improve your quality of life, I am asking for your support. Please join us as we stand united for Florida.”

Candidate for US Congress, FL District 17.
Allen Ellison was born in Highlands County and raised in Hardee County. His father is a pastor and mother, a special needs instructor. As a young man, Allen worked on central Florida’s citrus groves and cattle ranches. He graduated Florida Southern College in Lakeland in 2007, majoring in political science. Allen recognizes the importance of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service and the USDA to continue research in plant diseases, especially citrus greening as well as helping to market our state’s crops. Allen met with farmers in other states to identify other food crops that would suit Florida’s climate and soils if the citrus industry declines from the disease.
Allen Ellison, our own native son of Central Florida, understands our needs and concerns. Central Florida’s cities and farms deserve an effective and practical approach in Washington and Allen Ellison is the one to watch in 2020.
