Tom Keen Picks Up Key Endorsement in Race for Florida House District 35

OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – Democrat Tom Keen announced he has received the endorsement of State Senator Victor Torres in his race for the Florida House in District 35. His district will overlap with Senator Torres in Osceola County.

Both Senator Torres and Tom Keen are military veterans. Keen served as a Naval Flight Officer for twenty-one years on active duty. Senator Torres is a former Marine and retired Law Enforcement Officer.

“Tom is the best qualified person to represent voters in District 35,” stated Torres. “His military experience and continued service to the City of Orlando on the Citizen’s Police Review Board demonstrate his commitment, knowledge, and passion to represent our community. He is my choice for District 35.”

Keen stated “I’m running to fund our public schools, protect our environment, and help Florida make brighter choices for our future,” Keen says in his message. He highlighted his commitment to meeting the State’s most urgent needs, like providing immediate tax relief to help with the high cost of gas.

“Floridians are struggling with high cost of fuel today, but Fred Hawkins and Republicans in the Florida House voted to delay the Gas Tax Holiday until right before the November election – we need relief now – not a bribe in October.” said Keen. “May and November are the two months with the fewest tourists – if Republicans were serious about tax relief instead of bribing voters, they would have provided critical tax relief this month.”

Keen collected enough verified signatures to qualify by petition for the 2022 election cycle, a grassroots volunteer effort that lets him connect with voters individually. He has also recently been endorsed by VoteVets and Ironworkers Local 808.
