ST. PETERSBURG, FL – The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce its endorsement of Brigadier General Mark Bircher for Congress in Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
“General Bircher is exactly the kind of candidate we need to represent the people’s best interests in Congress” RLC National Chairman Matt Nye said. “His long and exemplary record of service, along with his principled stance on the issues, make him an excellent candidate that we are proud to endorse.”

“I can think of no better way to honor Bill Young’s legacy than to have one of our nation’s finest continue what he started in addressing the needs of our veterans,” RLC of Florida Vice-Chairman and lifelong Pinellas County resident Joe Jordan said. “Mark’s understanding of the role of government and the Constitution make him an ideal candidate for an RLC endorsement. We are thrilled and thankful that General Bircher has chosen to run in our district, and we are honored to support him.”
