On Monday, former state Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff received the endorsement of the Florida Medical Association PAC (FMA PAC), the state’s leading advocate for pro-medicine candidates.
Bogdanoff is seeking a rematch of 2012, when the Fort Lauderdale Republican lost to Sen. Maria Sachs in the Democrat-leaning Florida House District 34, which includes parts of Broward and Palm Beach County.
“Former State Representative and State Senator Ellyn Bogdanoff has proven time and time again her strong support of the issues and initiatives backed by the Florida Medical Association,” said FMA PAC President Dr. Ralph Nobo. “She is a friend of medicine and we are thrilled to support her candidacy and look forward to having her back in Tallahassee.”
Established in 1974, FMA PAC supports state office candidates seeking to make Florida the best state to practice medicine. Through voluntary contributions from healthcare professionals, FMA studies and chooses candidates who will strongly advocate the medical profession. As Florida’s foremost medical PAC, FMA had raised over $1 million through the end of 2013.
“It’s an honor and privilege to have received the support of physicians throughout the State of Florida,” Ellyn Bogdanoff said in a statement “I believe it is imperative that doctors remain in charge of patient care, and I will always support policies that place the patient’s health above all else.”
