Vote for Dan Gelber for Attorney General by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Hello BlueBroward.org! This is my first posting to this blog. It is so great to see all of my good Democratic friends communicating and spreading the word about Democratic candidates in Broward County!

I would like to encourage all of you to join me in support of my friend, former colleague and the most qualified candidate in the race for Attorney General, Dan Gelber.  Dan has an impeccable and significant legal background. He spent ten years as a federal prosecutor and served as the Democratic Chief Counsel and Staff Director for the U.S.  Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, the most prestigious standing committee in the Senate.

More importantly, Dan is a compassionate and committed public servant and a good friend. He has the integrity, the honesty, the vision and the moxie that Florida needs in our next Attorney General.

I generally don’t get involved in Democratic primaries, particularly between two friends of mine, both of whom I served with in the Legislature. However, I made an exception because who we choose as our state’s next Chief Legal Officer is a big deal. Experience matters. Dan has been endorsed by all ten major Florida newspapers who have endorsed in this race so far. They recognized that he has the experience that Florida needs. Most of all, in these difficult times, Floridians  need an Attorney General in whom they can have confidence. We need a strong leader.  Dan Gelber is the type of public servant who will inspire that confidence.  I wholeheartedly endorse him and encourage all BlueBroward.org readers to vote for him during early voting leading up to the August 24th primary.

Thank you for the confidence that you all have placed in me for the past 18 years. It is a privilege to represent our community in Washington, DC.  I’ll be back to post on other occasions! Until then,

Best Wishes,

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

  1. I canvassed for Gelber last Saturday. I had been dropped off and then walked, but the groups of buildings I had to visit were much farther apart than I had expected. The heat was absolutely sweltering. That’s enough reason for Dan Gelber to win… but thanks for your effort as well, Congresswoman.

  2. Why Bill McCollum’s defense of Alex Sink should not be trusted.

    Bill McCollum is trying to save and recover his political legacy. Bill McCollum tried to stop gay adoption, tried to bring an Arizona-style law to Florida, and is trying to simply recover his political stature.

    Bill McCollum has endorsed poltical novice Republican Pam Bondi for the important position of attorney general. This position is a cabinet position and the Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer of the state of Florida. If Bill McCollum really cared about the future well-being of the state of Florida he would endorse Dan Gelber for Attorney General. The state of Florida has many, many problems affecting its citizens. We are at a cross-roads on many local, state-specific legal issues. Pam Bondi has no political experience, is too partisan to represent all of our views, and is a less-qualified attorney than Dan Gelber. She is unwilling to even participate in a debate with Dan Gelber about our issues. She prefers to speak through Fox media and not through the debate process. We deserve to know the candidates and be able to vote intelligently.

    Bill McCollum does right by setting the record straight about Rick Scott but fails to help on the issue of Pam Bondi. Pam Bondi is not qualified to hold this important office. The state depends too much on the judgment of the Attorney General to place its well-being in the hands of Pam Bondi.

    Citizens of Florida should Vote for Dan Gelber, vote for Florida’s future. demand excellence from your poltical leaders and nothing less.

    DAN GELBER FOR FLORIDA’S ATTORNEY GENERAL
