The St. Petersburg Times Endorses Dan Gelber
The best candidate in all the Florida statewide races has been officially endorsed by the St. Petersburg Times. The editorial board gave Dan Gelber a slam dunk endorsement.
The clear choice in this election is state Sen. Dan Gelber, a Miami Beach Democrat who has demonstrated his commitment to law and order, open government and fairness. He commands bipartisan respect in the Legislature, and he has impeccable legal credentials as a former federal prosecutor, former U.S. Senate investigator and a highly rated attorney.
In a just world we would be talking about Gelber getting an endorsement as a U.S. Senate or Florida gubernatorial candidate. Gelber is by far one of the most outstanding public officials in the state. Gelber does not come off as a blow hard and speaks intelligently about policy issues. Lord knows we can use more people like that in public office.
