UPDATED 11:15 a.m.: Not to be outdone by Dan Gelber's endorsement announcement below, his rival Dave Aronberg added Congressman Ron Klein to his camp. "His legislative record embodies the commitment to public safety and consumer advocacy that we must demand of Florida’s next attorney general," Klein said.
Miami State Sen. Dan Gelber hauled in the biggest endorsement so far in the competitive Democratic primary for Attorney General as Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced Friday her support for his campaign.
In a letter to Gelber's supporters, the Weston Democrat and DNC vice-chairwoman said he "has the experience the job demands."
"I know you want Florida to finally obtain the change that has eluded it," Wasserman Schultz's fundraising letter states. "Dan's experience, passion and integrity is precisely what we need."
Gelber and his primary opponent, state Sen. Dave Aronberg of Greenacres, have touted the endorsements of various county sheriff's in recent weeks, but few high-ranking Democrats are taking sides in the race.Gelber and Wasserman Schultz, however, go back to their days in the Florida House together.
