Debbie Wasserman-Schultz endorses Dan Gelber as Democratic nominee for Attorney General
Feb 26, 2010
In one of the first big endorsements in the Democratic race for Attorney General, South Florida Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz today announced her support for Dan Gelber in the Democratic primary for Attorney General.
In a conference call this morning, Wasserman-Schultz admitted that the decision did not come lightly for her, saying that she generally doesn’t get involved in primaries, “especially those with friends.” But she said that Gelber’s experience over his younger opponent, State Senator Dave Aronberg, is what sealed the deal for her.
Though Aronberg himself worked under the last Democrat to serve as AG in Florida, the highly respected Bob Butterworth, Wasserman-Schultz called Gelber, a former Federal Prosecutor and now a state senator representing Miami Beach, “as cut from the same cloth as Bob Butterworth.”
The endorsement could be significant. Though both candidates have boasted about various law enforcement and/or state attorneys who have publicly supported them, many top name Democrats have so far avoided an endorsement, since both legislators are highly thought of throughout the party. And it’s still only February, nearly half a year before Democratic primary voters will decide between the two candidates.
Gelber is a former federal prosecutor who began serving in the Florida House in 2000. Wasserman-Schultz today also gave him props for his help in getting nine Democrats elected to the house in 2006, which the Congresswoman called “incredibly important.”
Gelber and Aronberg will be in St. Petersburg tomorrow night, for the Pinellas County Kennedy/King dinner. They will also be participating in a town-hall style meeting around noon that the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus will host at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront.
