DFA Palm Beach County Makes Early Endorsement of Nan Rich for Governor
West Palm Beach, FL: Following in the footsteps of NOW, Democracy For America Palm Beach County (DFAPBC) has voted to make an early endorsement of Senator Nan Rich, candidate for Governor of Florida.
"We feel strongly that Senator Rich exemplifies our values of being socially progressive and fiscally responsible. She stands firmly for public education, women's rights and has a strong history on gun safety legislation, among other things. " said Hillary Keyes, co-chair of the group.
Among the resources taken into consideration in this decision was a report published by the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida on gun safety, in which Senator Rich and two others whose names have been floated as possible candidates were compared on their history of gun related votes, quotes and endorsements.
DFA Palm Beach County is a local chapter of Democracy For America, the organization founded by Governor Howard Dean. We are committed to growing a strong progressive voice in Palm Beach County, grooming and electing progressive candidates in all levels of government and promoting progressive issues on local, state and national levels.
