Gelber gets former Gov. MacKay's support

Sen. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach, has the endorsement of former Gov. Buddy MacKay. Gelber is running against fellow Sen. Dave Aronberg of Greenacres for the Democratic attorney general primary.

"Our state is at a crossroad and now more than ever we need a leader like Dan Gelber who will confront the challenges of today with bold solutions," MacKay said, in a release from the Gelber campaign. "Dan is the candidate most equipped with the skills and experience to serve as Attorney General and will put his more than decade of prosecutorial experience to work on day one. His record prior to elected office and during his more than nine years in the Florida Legislature on every issue, from fighting for a quality education system to preserving our environment and standing up against scam artists and crooks who prey on seniors is why I am proud to support Dan."

Gelber also has been endorsed by former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno.
