RUTH’S LIST FLORIDA ANNOUNCES ENDORSEMENTS IN KEY SOUTH FLORIDA LEGISLATIVE RACES
Tampa, FL – Ruth’s List FL, the state’s largest organization dedicated to recruiting and aiding pro-choice Democratic women candidates, is announcing new endorsements in two key South Florida legislative races. Ruth’s List FL is endorsing State Representative Tina Polsky (D) for Florida Senate in SD 29 and former State Representative Kelly Skidmore (D) for Florida House of Representatives in HD 81.
“Throughout their legislative careers, both Representative Polsky and former Representative Skidmore have proven to be fierce Democratic champions for the issues that matter most to Floridians. Not only do they bring to their races lengthy records of public service and strong commitments to their communities, they are also well positioned to win.
With Florida’s legislature still sorely lacking in female representation, it is imperative that we continue our fight to get more women elected at the legislative level. We know that Representative Polsky and Representative Skidmore will continue to be outspoken advocates for women and their communities and they have our full support behind them.” -Pamela Goodman, President/CEO, Ruth’s List Florida
