Jolly is facing former state CFO Alex Sink, Democrat and Libertarian Lucas Overby for the seat vacated by the late Bill Young.

McCain, best known for being the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, praised Jolly for his work on behalf of veterans.

“It is a tremendous honor to have the support of Senator John McCain – a true example of steadfast leadership and service to his constituents and the citizens of this nation,” said Jolly. “A Navy veteran himself, Senator McCain has worked with members of both parties to ensure our nation’s veterans, and the veterans of his home state, have the support they need and deserve here at home. I thank Senator McCain for his backing in this race to represent Florida’s 13th Congressional District in Washington, and I look forward to working alongside him to ensure our veterans and our men and women of the armed forces continue to have access to the resources and services they have so rightfully earned.”

“The United States Congress needs principled leaders like David Jolly,” said McCain. “His experience ensures he will be effective for the people of Pinellas County on day one. David has strong convictions and also believes in civility and working together to get things done. And, his support for America’s men and women in uniform, our veterans, and particularly our wounded warriors, is more than just a campaign promise – he’s lived this commitment through service at our military hospitals, at our VA centers and with multiple veterans’ organizations. It’s a commitment to service David will continue in Congress.”

The March 11 special election will determine the candidate and then a November election will re-seat the position.
