|Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida|
This Freedom Caucus seems poised to rally around Florida's Congressman Daniel Webster (yep, that's really his name). Webster was the speaker of Florida's House and garnered praise from allies and foes alike. Oklahoma's former state senator, Don Rubottom has spent the last 18 years at the Tallahassee capitol building and is currently the clerk of the legislature.
|Sen. Don Rubottom|
"My friend Congressman Dan Webster is the very conservative Congressman who had the guts to run for Speaker against Boehner. Dan Webster asked me to come to Florida to work for him in 1996 when he became the first Republican Speaker here in 122 years.".Rubottom maintains contacts with many Oklahoma conservative activists. Recently Don explained;
" Everyone respects Dan Webster and he's shown he will not "play ball". He transformed the Florida House and could do the same in Washington. Character. Integrity." Don went on to say; " You can't find any reformer for Speaker other than Webster. Everyone else is about the power and perks. I worked for Webster, he is different."
