In a tweet tonight, President Donald Trump endorsed Florida’s District 8 Congressman Bill Posey (Republican-Rockledge) for reelection.
Posey retweeted the endorsement thank the President. Posey has come a long way with the President since the days of his inauguration. In a report by The Independent, Posey was critical of Trump’s tweets about the crowd size of his inauguration. Reportedly, Trump responded to Posey with “who the f*** are you?”
Yesterday, Scott Caine (Republican-Vero Beach) a retired Air Force Colonel and Fighter Pilot filed and qualified for the Republican Primary as Posey’s opponent. Posey (72 years old) is running for his 7th consecutive term in Congress, and this is the first time he is facing a primary challenger since 2008.
Caine (58 years old) retired in 2017 after 30 years of service to the United States Air Force. He was an A-10 Warthog Fighter Pilot. In his last year of service, Caine was the oldest and most senior active-duty Air Force pilot current and qualified in the A-10.
