State Rep. Matt Caldwell, a North Fort Myers Republican running for Commissioner of Agriculture, announced endorsements of returning GOP House members from Northeast Florida.

It’s the third wave of legislative endorsements announced by the campaign.

The news follows unanimous support of House members from the Panhandle and Southwest Florida delegations, the campaign said.

“I will continue to work hard to earn the trust and support of voters across the Sunshine State, who deserve a Commissioner that has the leadership and policy experience to lead in Tallahassee on day one,” Caldwell said in a statement.

Those in the latest round are Reps. Cord ByrdTravis CummingsJason FischerBobby PaynePaul RennerCyndi Stevenson, and Clay Yarborough.

Current Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, a Republican, is term-limited next year.

Caldwell faces state Sen. Denise Grimsley, former state Rep. Baxter Troutman, and Paul Paulson in the GOP primary. R. David Walker has filed to run as a Democrat.
