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,
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
