The Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida announced on Saturday that it has endorsed Debbie Mayfield in the Florida Senate District 17 race.

“Of the candidates in this race, Debbie Mayfield best personifies the values and principles of the Republican Liberty Caucus," said RLC Florida Chairman Bob White. 

"For more than twenty years the Republican Liberty Caucus has been a strong voice for the principles of limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty within the Republican Party.  We believe that less government means more liberty and we work through local chapters and with our member activists all over the country to oppose government excess and demand accountability to the people and the Constitution. Based on our conversations with Debbie, we are convinced that she is equally committed to these principles and values.”




Debbie Mayfield is a native Floridian. She was the owner/operator of a small business and is the mother of three sons. She was first elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2008 and subsequently re-elected to represent District 54, which includes all of Indian River County and part of St. Lucie County. Mayfield now resides in Brevard County. State Senate District 17 includes most of Brevard County and all of Indian River County. 

Mayfield is currently Chair of the Business and Regulation Subcommittee for the Florida House of Representatives. She also serves on the Agriculture & Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee, Energy & Utilities Subcommittee, Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, and the Regulatory Affairs Committee.

“Debbie is a strong fiscal conservative who believes in a smaller and smarter government,” White continued. “She is a property rights advocate and has been a champion for education reform, having led the fight against Common Core, and filing legislation to return the Florida Commissioner of Education post to an elected rather than an appointed position. The Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida is proud to endorse Debbie Mayfield in her race for the Florida Senate!”
