Treasure Coast businessman Toby Overdorf has earned a second endorsement from a Stuart city commission member, as Becky Bruner announced her support for Overdorf’s House District 83 campaign.
Bruner was elected to the Group II Seat last year with 64 percent of the vote. She also owns Becks Fine Furniture in Stuart.
“Toby Overdorf is the right person for the job,” said Bruner in a statement.
“Toby knows this community well and has the right motivation to serve in the Legislature. I’m confident we can count on him to support policies that strengthen our economy, keep taxes low, and protect our rights.”
“I really appreciate Commissioner Bruner’s support,” Overdorf said in response. “She may be relatively new on the City Commission, but she is no stranger to public service, and I look forward to working with her.”
Bruner joins fellow Stuart City Commissioner Troy McDonald in backing Overdorf. Congressman Tom Rooney also recently endorsed Overdorf in the race for the HD 83 Republican nomination.
Overdorf is competing with Sasha Dadan in the Republican primary. Matt Theobald also joined the HD 83 race this week on the Democratic side.
They’re running to replace outgoing Rep. Gayle Harrell, who is term-limited.
HD 83 covers portions of Martin and St. Lucie counties and leans Republican. The primaries will be held Aug. 28, followed by the general election on Nov. 6.
