The Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter (ABC FEC) has endorsed Republican Toby Overdorf for House District 83.
The association, which advocates for merit-based construction, includes general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers.
“We believe Toby Overdorf is the most qualified candidate in this race,” said ABC FEC president and CEO Peter M. Dyga.
“Toby’s values line up very well with the principles of limited government that ABC values. He will stand up for our free enterprise system and work to promote policies that benefit not just our industry, but the entire state.”
Overdorf, a Treasure Coast businessman, is competing in the Aug. 28 Republican primary with Sasha Dadan. The winner will take on Matt Theobald, the only Democratic candidate.
“I’m proud to have ABC’s endorsement,” Overdorf said in a statement. “Their support means a lot to me because of what they stand for. I look forward to standing with them to make sure Florida continues on a path toward great economic growth and opportunity.”
Oberdof advocates for limited government and says he will stop the All Aboard Florida rail transportation system.
HD 83 includes parts of Martin and St. Lucie counties and trends to the Republican side.
