Attorney and Florida state legislator elected to US Congress in 2010, succeeding Adam Putnam. Conservative Republican; anti-abortion rights, pro-gun rights, pro-offshore drilling. Campaign rhetoric called for reduced taxes, smaller budgets, repeal of 2010 health care reform, and a "sunset" committee to review each federal agency before renewing funding. As the 2011 debate over raising the federal debt ceiling was in stalemate, Ross tweeted that shutting down the Departments of Commerce, Education, Energy, Labor, "etc." would be a "silver lining".
