As of today February 14th2018 I am withdrawing my name from the list of Republican candidates for the office of Governor of Florida. I simply cannot divide our party in these important times. I am proud of the campaign we built over that last few months. The energy and effort put in by everyone from our staff to the volunteers was incredible. We truly represented what Florida is about. Being a candidate for one of the most important States was truly the greatest honor of my life. I know how disappointed some of you may feel because I am too. For the Veterans, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, Teachers, State employees and anyone who felt like you didn’t have a voice, know that you are valued and an important part of our communities. I will always fight foryou. This was never about me, it was about the future of our great State. I will announce in the coming months who I will support for Governor of Florida. For now, I will take sometime to reflect on things and spend some much needed time with my family. 

Sincerely,

Angel Rivera
