Former WWE NXT referee Drake Wuertz took to Instagram today, declaring his candidacy for the 30th district of the Florida House of Representatives.
The controversial former WWE NXT referee is running in a district that includes Orange County and Seminole County. These counties feature the cities of Orlando (WWE PC), Winter Park (FSU), and others.
Democrat Joy Goff-Marcil won the district in 2021 with 53% of the vote.
Wuertz was released from WWE back in May. At the time, there was a lot of backstage heat on him for a variety of reasons, with one of those being that he was so outspoken about his views against COVID-19 protection including masks and vaccinations.
In his Instagram post, Wuertz said,
I’m happy to announce my candidacy for Florida State Representative in District 30.
The land we love has changed in recent years. We’ve seen our liberties and rights be stripped away at the quake of others fears. We’ve been told that it’s selfish to defend our God-given Rights. We’ve seen leaders become sheep, and men become lions. We’ve seen Florida rise to lead a Nation. Our way of life that we hold so dearly is now at risk of being overtaken by the Marxist left.
As a Christian, a family man, and a community leader I’m answering the call to rise up and defend our great state while representing the hard working constituents of District 30.
God has put us here for such a time as this
As a MAGA Republican and a bold conservative I’ll be the warrior our state needs to push back against the radical left. Together we’ll fight to prevent medical tyranny, expand school choice, protect our 2nd Amendment rights, and ensure election integrity.
However the most vulnerable in our state are the 74,000+ baby Floridians that are being murdered every year in the barbaric act of abortion.
As the first Abolitionist candidate in Florida, I will file legislation to Abolish (not regulate) the murder of preborn children and make Florida the first abortion-free state in our Nation.
