Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus Endorsements
The Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus is proud to announce the following endorsements:
- President – Hillary Clinton
- Congress – Debbie Wasserman Schultz, District 23
- Congress – Bob Poe, District 10
- State House – Carlos Guillermo Smith, District 49
- State House – Beth Tuura, District 47
Hillary Clinton has demonstrated not just support for the LGBT community, but a willingness to fight for equality. While in the Senate, she consistently supported legislation to prohibit discrimination, fight against hate crimes and to allow for LGBT individuals to serve their country openly.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been a consistent voice for equality in the US House, championing legislation to enhance the rights of LGBT individuals everywhere. She has consistently supported the Caucus and we thank her for that.
Bob Poe is not only running to be the first openly LGBT Congressman from Florida, but also would make history as the first HIV-positive member. We applaud him for his efforts to reduce the stigma that has come with that status.
Carlos Guillermo Smith is no stranger to the Florida Legislature, having served as the legislative aide to former State Rep Joe Saunders. He would be the first openly LGBT Latino member of the State House.
Beth Tuura would be the first openly lesbian member of the State House, a much needed voice in the legislature.
