CD 6 Republican Brandon Patty announced on Thursday his campaign leadership team, which has a distinctly Jacksonville feel.

Heavy hitters from the Duval County GOP abound on his team, including Herb Peyton of Gate Petroleum, Bill Gay Jr. of WW Gay, Jay Demetree and John Baker, both of whom were instrumental in helping to get Lenny Curry elected Jacksonville Mayor.

Baker described Patty as the “pro-growth, problem solving conservative fighter needed in District 6.”

Patty, of course, has prominent supporters in his own district also.

Brian Anderson, West Volusia small business owner and fourth generation rancher, lauded Patty for his “truly impressive… knowledge of local issues, especially agriculture.”

New Smyrna Republican activist Muriel Priestley said, meanwhile,Via that “Brandon’s conservative values, military and business experience, and strong vision” help to make him “the best candidate in this race to send to Washington.”

“Together with my team, we will work hard to change Washington and restore the people’s trust. That starts with limited government and more freedom here at home and American strength and leadership abroad. We’re building a solid leadership team in our district,” said Patty. “I’m proud to have the support of respected leaders from every corner of the region.”
