U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy
Florida’s 7th Congressional District “I am excited and proud to support Anna in her bid to serve the people of House District 47. I have seen Anna in action and she is a proven effective advocate. She is a strong and empathetic leader, who is fighting to ensure the safety and security of our community and to hold our state government accountable. This community deserves a State Representative who will always put people over politics, and that’s why I will do whatever it takes to make sure we elect Anna in 2018.”

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer
Former State Senator, 1992-2002 “There’s no doubt that Anna truly represents the Democratic Party’s future. She is a rising star in Florida politics and in our community. She works hard each day to deliver results and gets things done for the people of Florida. I have full confidence that we will be in good hands with Anna Eskamani representing us in the Florida Legislature. It is my honor to endorse Anna Eskamani for Florida House District 47.”
Orange County Sheriff Jerry L. Demings
Sheriff Demings served as Chief of the Orlando Police Department from 1998-2002, then as Director of Public Safety for Orange County from 2002-2008, before being elected Sheriff of Orange County in 2008, and re-elected for two additional terms.
“I have known Anna since her days as an officer of the College Democrats at UCF. That was nearly ten years ago, and it has been incredible to watch her grow into the community leader she is today. Anna is someone who gets it — she works hard, takes time to understand the issues, and is always looking for common ground. She cares deeply about public safety and our first responders too. We will be in good hands with Anna as our next State House Representative.”
Moms Demand Action announced that Anna V. Eskamani has been given the distinction as a “Gun Sense Candidate” for her race in Florida House District 47.
“Reducing and preventing gun violence is a public safety issue, not a political one. Over 35,000 Americans are killed every year by gun violence and thousands more are injured. Responsible gun owners know that supporting the Second Amendment goes hand in hand with common-sense solutions to reduce gun violence. Thank you again for standing up for gun violence prevention and recognizing gun safety.”Moms Demand Action
“Florida NOW PAC is thrilled to endorse Anna Eskamani for the Florida House District 47. Anna’s drive, talent, and passion shines in every endeavor she undertakes. Florida NOW and Planned Parenthood have formed a cohesive team, in large part due to Anna’s commitment to ensuring all Floridians have full access to reproductive health care. She will be a positive addition to the legislature.”Terry Sanders
Anna V. Eskamani was named a “2018 Champion” by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which recognizes candidates from around the country who are fighting for progressive priorities and looking out for the needs of everyday families. “We’re proud to support Anna as she turns big ideas into action for working families.”Stephanie Taylor
“Anna Eskamani is running a strong campaign with a bold progressive vision. An Orlando native, she has a long history of fighting for all Floridians. She believes that health care is a right, not a privilege, and she will be a fierce advocate for expanding affordable access to health care for everyone, especially women. … Not only could we flip the seat, we could fill it with an unabashed progressive who has been an active MoveOn member for years and who will work to increase access to education, to ensure equal pay for equal work, and to make sure that all our communities are represented and have a voice in the political process.”The Members of MoveOn.org
“Anna understands the struggles so many working families in Florida are facing, because she grew up facing those same struggles every day. She has devoted her life to lifting up working people, supporting struggling families, and holding politicians accountable to their constituents. Anna has proven herself to be a strong progressive who gets things done, and we will do our part to make sure she wins in November.”Joe Dinkin
“We’re excited to announce our endorsement of Anna Eskamani, who is running for the Florida House in District 47. Her connections to the Iranian-American community, and the issues that affect us, run deep – she has organized activists locally against Trump’s Muslim ban and would become the first Iranian American ever elected to the Florida legislature!”Jamal Abadi
