My name is Phil Ehr. I’m a U.S. Navy veteran and the Democratic Nominee challenging Matt Gaetz for Florida’s 1st Congressional District.
I’m fighting to restore honor and the integrity of your representation in Congress.
I’m a husband, father, and community volunteer. I have two strong and confident daughters Jen and Claire, with my amazing wife, Sue.
I’m a Navy mustang, because I rose from Seaman to Commander during a 26-year active duty career.
I flew reconnaissance missions in the Cold War, Desert Storm, the Balkans and post-9/11 operations.
I’m not a career politician, but I’ve spent my whole life working to make our government fairer.
Northwest Florida deserves honorable representation.
That is why I am in this race. I’m here to help cut out the noise, listen, and represent you.
I’m motivated by love for our country, which while sometimes imperfect, has always been great.
This is a time when we need competent leadership the most.
This election gives us all an opportunity for real change.
We can elect people based on their record of competent leadership and service.
We can elect leaders who have a vision that goes beyond the next election cycle and headline news.
The soul of our nation is at stake in this election.
So I’m asking you today to trust me to represent you,
And to move Northwest Florida, and this country,
Forward with honor.
