Patricia Sigman has today been endorsed by Equality Florida Action PAC, the advocacy arm of Equality Florida, in her campaign for Senate District 9.
“For more than 20 years, Equality Florida has led the fight for a more fair and equitable state for all Floridians,” stated Patricia Sigman. “I could not be more proud to have the endorsement of Equality Florida Action PAC because our movement is grounded in the belief that everyone deserves to be treated equally under the law. As your next state Senator, I will do everything I can to pass the Florida Competitive Workforce Act to ensure that no one is denied the right to work because of who they are or who they love.”
Equality Florida Action PAC is the largest organization in Florida devoted to electing pro-equality candidates to all levels of government. Through mobilization, advocacy and education we engage and turn out pro-equality voters in Florida in support of LGBTQ and pro-equality candidates.
“Senate District 9 is going to be one of the most competitive state legislative races of 2020 and Equality Florida Action PAC is putting a marker down for our members and supporters early and clearly,” said Equality Florida’s Senior Political Director Joe Saunders. “Patricia Sigman is ready to fight on day one for statewide LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections and has pledged to work to preserve the right to marry who we love from extremist attacks. Patricia’s race is a top priority for our LGBTQ community and we’re excited to support her and this groundbreaking campaign.”
Since announcing her campaign for Senate District 9, Patricia Sigman has generated incredible momentum with over $250,000 raised since filing in January, the endorsement of Senate Democratic Leader Designate Gary Farmer and the support of Senate Victory, and the endorsements of former Education Commissioner Betty Castor, former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, former Democratic Attorney General nominee Sean Shaw, former Florida CFO Alex Sink, and Ruth’s List Florida.
An open seat due to term limits, State Senate District 9 encompasses all of Seminole County and a portion of western Volusia County. As the fastest changing red-to-blue State Senate district in Florida, Democratic performance increased at the top of the ticket by five points from the 2016 to 2018 election. Senate Victory sees this district as poised to flip and is committed to Patricia’s election in 2020.
