ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (FNN NEWS) — Source: Crist for Governor // Today, State Representatives Yvonne Hayes Hinson of Gainesville, Tracie Davis of Jacksonville, Felicia Robinson of Miami Gardens, and Dianne Hart of Tampa endorsed Charlie Crist for governor of Florida, citing his commitment to creating jobs, investing in public education, and building a Florida for all Floridians.
“Floridians are looking to close the door on the failed leadership that has put our well-being and economy at such great risk,” said Rep. Yvonne Hayes Hinson. “The Sunshine State needs compassionate and level-headed leadership that will move our communities forward, not backwards. That’s what Charlie Crist delivers — opportunity for all Floridians. I’m ready to work every day to elect Charlie our next Governor, and I’m calling on everyone to join me.”
“From his service to our state as education commissioner to his time in the Governor’s mansion, and now in Congress, Charlie Crist has a long record of standing up for working Floridians. Electing public servants that will empower and reflect the will of the people of Florida is my top priority in 2022, and that’s why I’m supporting Charlie for Governor,” said Rep. Tracie Davis. “Charlie is who we need to unite our state, build anew, and ensure a Florida for all.”
“Families across South Florida are looking for an effective leader with the vision and experience to crush this pandemic and jumpstart our communities for the better — I know that leader is Charlie Crist,” said Rep. Felicia Simone Robinson. “I trust Charlie to take back the helm of our state and get to work for Floridians on day one. Charlie is who we need in Tallahassee, and I’m proud to endorse him for Governor.”
“Charlie has the heart and the know-how to build a Florida that works for everyone,” said Rep. Dianne Hart. “Charlie understands that equality and justice only come from hard work by leaders willing to listen to our state’s communities. Charlie will invest in public schools, restore voting rights for hundreds of thousands, reform our criminal justice system, and invest in infrastructure to create good jobs. Florida needs Charlie, and I’m going to do everything I can to ensure he is elected our next Governor.”
“I’m honored and grateful for the endorsements of my friends Rep. Hinson, Rep. Davis, Rep. Robinson, and Rep. Hart. With leaders like Yvonne, Tracie, Felicia, and Dianne on our side, we are continuing to build a winning team that will defeat Governor DeSantis and create a Florida for All,” said Charlie Crist. “The stakes couldn’t be higher in this election — good jobs are on the line, public schools are on the line, and opportunity for every community is on the line. That’s why I’m running for governor — to deliver for the people.”
