Cannon backing Haridopolos for U.S. Senate in 2012by George Bennett | February 3rd, 2011
House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, is endorsing Senate President Mike Haridopolos’ bid for U.S. Senate in 2012, according to two people who heard Cannon speak to Haridopolos supporters today.
Cannon was on hand when Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, met with about 75 donors and supporters to discuss the Senate bid at the Airport Hyatt in Orlando today.
Haridopolos is one of several potential GOP candidates for the seat of Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. Former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner of Boca Raton, Delray Beach businessman and philanthropist Nick Loeb, former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux and U.S. Rep. Connie Mack of Cape Coral are among the other possible GOP candidates.
