Jon Ausman endorses Jeff Greene

in Statewide by

Momentum continues to grow for Democrat Jeff Greene following the Palm Beach Post debate. Today, Greene received the endorsement of state Democratic National Committee member, Jon Ausman, former West Palm Beach county commissioner and former West Palm Beach mayor, Carol Roberts, and former Wilton Manors city commissioner and first openly gay African-American elected official in the state, Joe Angelo.

“After watching the debate, I am convinced that Jeff Greene is the Democrat we need representing the people of Florida in Washington,” said DNC member Jon Ausman. “Jeff Greene has the experience to create jobs and get real results.”

“As a life-long Democrat, I strongly endorse my fellow Democrat, Jeff Greene, for Unites States Senate,” said former West Palm Beach county commissioner and former West Palm Beach mayor, Carol Roberts. “I trust Jeff Greene will create jobs that our state and country needs and will not be beholden to the special interests.”

“I’m proud to endorse Democrat Jeff Greene for U.S. Senate because he will revitalize Florida’s economy with good paying jobs, he’ll protect our environment and increase access to quality education,” said former Wilton Manors city commissioner, Joe Angelo. “I wholeheartedly support Jeff Greene for United States Senator.”

The endorsements come on the heels of the Palm Beach Post debate where Jeff Greene went toe-to-toe with failed career politician Kendrick Meek and a recent Quinnipiac poll that shows Greene in a statistical tie with his Democratic opponent.

“I’m honored to have the support of Mr. Ausman, Ms. Roberts and Mr. Angelo, who are leaders in the Democratic Party and in their community,” said Greene. “As U.S. senator, I will revitalize Florida’s economy, create jobs, and get real results. I am the only candidate who is an outsider, has successfully created jobs and won’t take a penny from any special interest and will always put Florida first.”

Jeff Greene is the Democratic candidate that if elected will work to create jobs, protect a woman’s right to choose, strengthen environmental laws, repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, won’t take a penny of special interest money and will donate his salary to charities in Florida.
