Independent Party of Florida

“Throughout his career, Eric Lynn has shown a commitment to American and Pinellas values. With partisanship and extremism on both sides plaguing our nation, Eric is the type of common sense leader Pinellas, Florida, and the United States need in this critical time for our nation’s history.”

– Independent Party Chairman Ernest Bach


“Eric’s commitment to Veterans, our military, and the safety and security of the United States is crucially needed in Congress right now. January 6th showed that a very real threat to our Republic and democracy exists domestically – even among some Members of Congress. We need Eric’s commitment and expertise to help push back against these attacks, and ensure we preserve, protect and defend our Constitution and all it represents. As Veterans, we also know that we can always be sure that Eric will have our backs.”

Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta

“This is a critical moment for our country and we need leaders who put our national security ahead of party. I know Eric Lynn is just the person to do that.”

National Security Leaders for America

“We know what happens when party loyalties replace patriotism. We know what happens when people decide violence is acceptable. We support Eric Lynn because, unlike his opponent, he understands that we cannot allow that to happen here.”
