Attorney General candidate Dave Aronberg announced the endorsements of five more Democratic Clerks of Court from across the state. This brings our total of Clerks to ten, with Aronberg saying there are more to come. From Aronberg:
Endorsements from these countywide elected officials are especially meaningful to me since Clerks have a great interest in supporting the Attorney General candidate with the best experience and motivation for doing the job.
These endorsements continue to show the widespread support we are receiving in our race to become Florida’s next chief legal officer. Additionally, as of the last posted financial reports with the Secretary of State, our campaign is the financial frontrunner in the entire race – ahead of ALL other candidates from both sides of the aisle.
With this outstanding combination of financial strength and grassroots local support, we have the momentum in our effort to become Florida’s next Attorney General.
We are pleased that the following Clerks are endorsing our campaign:
“I want my chief legal officer to exhibit the highest level of integrity, have the courage to take tough stands and be an advocate for the people. That is why I’m supporting and voting for Senator Dave Aronberg for Attorney General.”
— Bob Inzer, Leon County Clerk of Court
“I am proud to publicly endorse Dave Aronberg because he has the experience and the track record we need. Our Constitution calls the Attorney General the state’s ‘chief legal officer.’ As Clerk, I am charged with making sure our courts run smoothly, and with Dave at the helm, I know he will remain firmly committed to seeing our courts open and accessible to all Floridians.”
— Dale Guthrie, Jackson County Clerk of Court
“As County Clerk, my job is to ensure smooth and efficient operation of our courts. I can think of no better partner than Attorney General candidate Dave Aronberg. As an experienced lawyer and Senator, Dave will be an outstanding guardian for the rights of Florida’s citizens.”
— Joseph Smith, St. Lucie County Clerk of Court
“It is with great pleasure that I endorse Dave Aronberg for Attorney General. Dave’s experience and his longstanding commitment to helping keep our courts running smoothly will serve the citizens of our state very well.”
