TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis endorsed former NFL player Corey Simon in his newly announced campaign for State Senate District 3 Tuesday.
“From Pompano to Doak Campbell to the NFL to leading Volunteer Florida, Corey Simon has been a leader and would make a great addition to the Florida Senate,” DeSantis said.
The former Florida State University graduate and All-American defense tackle announced his bid for the seat Monday against Democratic Senator Loranne Ausley.
“Tallahassee has given my family and I the opportunity to succeed and thrive both on the field and off. North Florida is our home, and I want to do everything I can to give back to the community that has given so much to us,” Simon said.
Simon served as the Vice President of Community Relations at the Gabor Agency. He then started the Corey Simon Success Center to mentor the underserved population. Simon also started a program creating activities for foster kids at Florida State University.
“I am proud to announce my campaign for State Senate, because our community needs a voice that can deliver access to world class educational opportunities, safer neighborhoods and less government regulations on our small business owners,” Simon said.
