Support continues to grow for one Florida Republican’s election campaign. Congressman Gus Bilirakis is receiving major support for his upcoming race in Florida’s 12th Congressional District.
Bilirakis, who is seeking a ninth term, has served in Congress for almost 15-years and has stood strong for conservative values. The Republican has called out Joe Biden for incentivizing illegal immigration with his policies like proposing amnesty for up to 10 million illegal immigrants and offering aliens billions in taxpayer funded benefits.
“The administration has discussed paying illegal immigrants settlement payments of up to $450,000 and the spending package for this chamber includes amnesty for up to 10 million illegal immigrants and $100 billion in taxpayer benefits for them,” explained the Florida lawmaker. “These irresponsible proposals and dangerous open border policies will continue to fuel the crisis and encourage more illegal activity at the border. We must secure our borders.”
Meanwhile, Bilirakis has stood strong in protecting the sanctity of human life. He challenged the Abortion On Demand Until Birth Act, which aimed to prevent states from enacting laws that ensure parental involvement for minors seeking an abortion.
“I have worked in Congress to promote a culture of life and remain supportive of measures that respect the sanctity of human life by encouraging alternatives to abortion,” he stated. “Including counseling and pregnancy centers for women.”

According to 45th President Donald Trump’s endorsement, he has fought hard for the military and veterans. This comes in addition to his track-record of supporting first responders.
“We must have law and order and support our heroes who place their lives on the line to keep our communities safe,” said Bilirakis. “In short, we must defend not defund the police.”
His commitment to promoting faith, family and freedom earned him the American Patriot Award from the advocacy organization Association of Mature American Citizens, which has over 2 million members nationwide.
Bilirakis will be able to continue his work putting America first, staying true to Christian values and backing the blue if he is reelected in November of 2022.
