Karen Castor Dentel Wins FL House District 30
Karen Castor Dentel (sister of Rep. Kathy Castor) wins the Florida House seat for district 30. Here is the statement from Florida Democratic Party chairman Rod Smith.
“We congratulate Karen Castor Dentel on her decisive victory tonight. Throughout her career, Karen has been a strong advocate for children and families in central Florida and she will take that same leadership to Tallahassee. “Karen’s victory tonight is not just a win for middle class families but for those who are tired of the broken politics of the Republicans in Tallahassee. After waging what was one of the most despicable campaigns in American politics - fueled with special interests cash - Will Weatherford and the Republican’s false, disgusting attacks against a mother and schoolteacher will not be forgotten.Dentel's victory is particularly sweet after The Committee to Protect Florida falsely linked her to convicted rapist Jerry Sandusky. CPF is a PAC run by incoming House Speaker Will Weatherford. It is nice to see Dentel beat this garbage.
