Ken Keechl, Broward’s openly gay county commissioner, has endorsed Dave Aronberg for Florida attorney general. Here’s the announcement:
Commissioner Ken Keechl said that Senator Aronberg brings "a fresh approach and a passion for the job of Attorney General that is unique in this race."
A rising star within the Democratic Party, Commissioner Keechl is the first openly gay county elected official in Broward's history. "Senator Aronberg has been a strong advocate for human rights as a State Senator, and he will bring real change to Florida as our next Attorney General."
Senator Aronberg said he is grateful for Commissioner Keechl's support: “Ken's policies and actions have earned broad support from the community he serves, and it’s easy to see why. He has bipartisan appeal with his fiscal responsibility and leadership on ethics reform. I am proud he is now on my team.”
Commissioner Keechl adds his name to the long list of endorsements from leaders around the state -- including Broward Property Appraiser Lori Parrish -- who have endorsed Senator Aronberg for Attorney General.
