From Herman Cain's release:
The stakes are drastically higher in the race for Florida's 23rd Congressional District with the addition of Republican Ozzie deFaria to Herman Cain's Army of Davids. Cain, a businessman and former presidential frontrunner, today announced deFaria has formally adopted Cain's 9-9-9 Economic Recovery and Jobs Program.
deFaria is a first-generation American, born of immigrant parents from the impoverished Portuguese colony, Cape Verde Islands. From his first job at 13 to his career in business - which put him in charge of budgets totaling $1.5 billion and created more than 2,000 private sector jobs - deFaria knows that common sense and hard work will go nowhere with disastrous government interference such as the federal tax code.
"Herman Cain's 9-9-9 will help our economy grow by making needed and necessary reforms to our tax code. The 9-9-9 plan will simplify our tax structure, generate revenue from new payers, and help drive growth in business," deFaria said. "I look forward to working with Herman Cain and other like-minded supporters to promote and pass the 9-9-9 plan in the next Congress."
Cain welcomes deFaria as a 9-9-9 adopter in Florida's 23rd District: "It just goes to show there's no limit to support for a good idea," Cain said. "The bottom line is that Debbie Wasserman Schultz's voting record and destructive rhetoric as leader of the Democratic National Committee are part of a big government 'Crazy Train' that candidates like Ozzie deFaria are ready, willing and able to derail, to get our nation back on the right track."
In the past week, Mr. deFaria has received endorsements from former Republican Presidential nominee and Arizona Senator John McCain, as well as North Carolina Senator Richard Burr. In February, Ozzie was named an "On the Radar" candidate as part of the National Republican Congressional Committee's prestigious Young Guns program.
