ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN) – Since winning the Democratic nomination for Florida House District 48 in August, Supervisor Daisy Morales has been racking up endorsements from Florida’s most powerful Democratic leaders in a move that could clear the way for other state and federal lawmakers to rally behind her campaign.
Morales’s campaign announced today the endorsement of Florida State Senator Randolph Bracy, who represents Senate District 11, which includes part of Orange County. He joins U.S. Congressman Darren Soto, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, Florida House of Representatives Democratic Co-Leaders Bobby DuBose and Evan Jenne, State Representatives John Cortes and Bruce Antone in backing Morales’ candidacy for the Puerto Rican Democrat held seat since 2012.
Senator Randolph Bracy’s Statement
Appropriations Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice Vice Chair and Florida State Senator Randolph Bracy said, “Supervisor Daisy Morales is dedicated to public service. As a strong voice for affordable healthcare, environmental and economic justice, Daisy will stand on the side of working families in Tallahassee. Daisy understands the importance of people-powered politics and will fight for what’s right. That’s why I’m proud to endorse Daisy for State Representative in House District 48.”
Supervisor Daisy Morales’s Statement
“I’m humbled by the support of our social justice champion, Senator Bracy. He’s a true watchman over Florida’s criminal and civil justice systems, ensuring all Floridans who play by the rules are treated fairly, especially the black and brown communities in Orange County and District 48. This is true public service the people of Florida need. I look forward to continuing my working relationship with the Senator on this and other legislation as your next State Representative in House District 48,” said Supervisor Daisy Morales.
Morales faces Republican candidate Jesus Martinez in the November 3rd general election.
