As a former state legislator himself, President Obama recognizes the importance of electing strong leaders at the state level. 2008 was also the first election that I ever voted in, and our 44th President inspires me each day to be a compassionate and bold leader for our community, and to fight for Florida’s hard working families.
This distinction is a big deal, and will only fuel our fire to win in November. Make a gift today to help celebrate this major endorsement, and consider joining our movement as a volunteer too!
