The 2022 elections must return to the House and Senate strong majorities dedicated to safeguarding the rights of all American citizens, rebuilding trust in public service, and restoring confidence in the United States around the globe. To that end, the Steady State, a group of former national security professionals, is endorsing outstanding candidates, including Eric Lynn, who share our values, our commitment to the United States, and have demonstrated experience in national security.

Eric Lynn is running in Florida’s 13th Congressional District, to replace Charlie Crist, who is vacating the seat. Mr. Lynn has extensive national security experience, is a small business owner, and is a community advocate, who is a St. Petersburg native. He has the experience and pragmatism to deliver impactful results for Pinellas County on day one.

Mr. Lynn has worked on Capitol Hill, and as a Senior Advisor to President Obama. He advised three Defense Secretaries, and has significant experience shepherding defense programs and veterans’ issues through Congress. Mr. Lynn has demonstrated the leadership necessary to guide the country through the critical national security issues we face.

Founded after the 2016 Presidential election, the Steady State now includes over 200 national security professionals. Steady State members include former intelligence officers, specialists in defense policy, diplomats, and Congressional staff. We are pleased to endorse Eric Lynn and other candidates for the House and Senate who will continue to work tirelessly to strengthen America’s democracy and place in the world.
