Two dozen South Florida elected officials and community leaders are endorsing Charlie Crist’s for Governor, his campaign announced Thursday in Dania Beach with 18 of his new backers.
“We need a bigger room to fit all the people endorsing Charlie Crist,” joked Steve Geller, Mayor of Broward County and a former state senator.
The endorsements span Broward County from Pompano Beach to Davie and Hallandale, and come from 12 of the county’s 31 municipalities.
The latest round of endorsements add to 66 elected officials and community leaders across the state who have already supported the Democratic candidate running to unseat incumbent Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“I am honored and thankful to have the support of this astounding group of Broward County former and current elected and community leaders,” Crist said. “These endorsements reflect the strength and diversity of support our campaign has been blessed to receive in our mission to restore the soul of our Sunshine State and build a Florida for all. Broward County continues to play a key role taking back the Governor’s Mansion in 2022 and delivering the kind of leadership our people deserve. We won’t relent in the fight for what’s best for our state and all Floridians.”
