Florida Medical Association PAC, the largest supporter of pro-medicine candidates statewide, has endorsed House District 31 GOP hopeful Terri Seefeldt.
FMA PAC announced its support of Seefeldt, committee member of the Orange County Republican Executive Committee, in her bid to replace term-limited Rep. Bryan Nelson to represent Lake and Orange Counties and the towns of Eustis, Tavares, Umatilla, Mt. Dora and Apopka.
“Terri Seefeldt is the best candidate to represent District 31’s physicians and their patients,” said FMA PAC President Dr. Ralph Nobo. “We are proud to endorse Terri and believe she will stand with us in our fight to provide all Floridians with the highest quality of affordable health care,” continued Nobo.
Terri Seefeldt faces Randy Glisson, Belita Grassel, Joseph Stephens, and Jennifer Sullivan in the Republican Primary, which will be held Tuesday, August 26.
“I am honored to receive the support of Florida’s medical doctors,” said Seefeldt. “ I look forward to helping them keep medical malpractice premiums low and assist them with navigating the coming trials and tribulations of Obama Care implementation.”
Founded in 1974, FMA PAC endorses state office candidates seeking to advance Florida’s medical community. Through voluntary contributions from healthcare professionals, FMA chooses candidates who strongly support the state’s medical professionals. FMA, as Florida’s leading medical political committee, raised over $1 million in 2013.
