A year ago today I announced my candidacy for Attorney General. Since then I have been to every corner of our State and met thousands of Floridians who share my belief that we need to chart a better course.
Now, one year later, we have raised close to $1 million, and garnered the support of great Democrats like Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz; mayors like Jack Seiler in Ft Lauderdale, Pam Iorio in Tampa and Joe Boles in St Augustine; and every Democratic State Attorney who has endorsed in this race, along with the 21 state legislators who have chosen me over my primary opponent.
And today, I am humbled to add the South Florida Council of Fire Fighters to the growing list of organizations who are supporting me. My good friend, Dean Parkerson, the president of the South Florida Council of Fire Fighters shared this about my campaign:
“Our Council is proud to endorse Dan Gelber as Florida’s next Attorney General. Dan has proven he understands the issues firefighters face day in and day out and I know he will fight for us in Tallahassee. His record as a top prosecutor and his experience in strengthening emergency response efforts will serve Dan well as he confronts the growing challenges of our state as Attorney General.”
As a federal prosecutor for nearly a decade I learned what it means to fight for a principle. As your Attorney General, I will stand up to anyone no matter how powerful. Whether it’s BP or one of the many scam artists that find their way to Florida – I will not back down.
So, though I am ahead in every poll, there is much to do as most Floridians still lack familiarity with our race. Primary Election Day is less than 80 days away, and I need your help — including your financial contribution – to spread our message that we can change our State’s direction for the better.
Be part of the growing list of supporters who want a true consumer advocate in their next Attorney General.
Please join our campaign today.
