Dan Gelber picked up a big endorsement on Wednesday when the Service Employees International Union, with more than 45,000 Floridians in its ranks, announced they were endorsing his campaign.

“The members of SEIU Florida enthusiastically endorse state Sen. Dan Gelber in his campaign for attorney general,” said President Monica Russo of  SEIU’s Florida State Council. “Over the years, it has been Dan Gelber who has unequivocally fought for working families, children and seniors, no matter the consequences. Dan shares our members’ values and principles for quality care, a respect for workers’ rights and a commitment to new opportunities for all Floridians. Dan has always stood up for working families in the past and I know he will continue to do so as our next attorney general.”

“I am honored to have the support of SEIU Florida because we have stood shoulder-to-shoulder fighting for the millions of Floridians who lack health insurance and for a quality health-care system that does not leave anyone behind,” said Gelber. “I look forward to continue working with SEIU as we bring much-needed change to Florida.”
