GOP Agriculture Commissioner Nominee Matt Caldwell Talks Jobs, Everglades at Orlando Rally

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – The Florida Republican nominees for this year’s midterm elections held a unity rally at Ace Cafe in Orlando Thursday, which included State Representative Matt Caldwell, nominee for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture. The current Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam introduced him to the Orlando crowd.

Caldwell noted that Florida’s agricultural industry is different from other states and that it is indeed the hub for Central and South America, adding that he understands how important the industry is to Florida’s economy. “The Democrats talk and talk…about income inequality and how they’re going to solve everyone’s problems,” he said. “The way you solve income inequality is you get them jobs.”

On the point of water protection, he noted that the state legislature has secured $200 million for projects to work on the Everglades, and promised that by the end of his eight years as Agriculture Commissioner, he would “fix the Everglades.”

Like Attorney General nominee Ashley Moody, Caldwell exhorted the crowd to vote for the Florida GOP ticket to build on the work that Governor Scott’s administration has done and accomplish more.
