PBA Backs Dan Gelber for AG
Sen. Dan Gelber of Miami Beach, the Democratic candidate for attorney general, received the endorsement of the Florida Police Benevolent Association (PBA) on Friday over Pam Bondi, his Republican rival.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Florida PBA,” said Gelber. “The brave men and women of our law enforcement community who work every day to keep our residents safe, will have -- when I am elected attorney general -- a partner who will work with them to ensure the safety and security of all Floridians.”
John Rivera, president of the PBA, praised Gelber’s experience.
“Dan Gelber’s track record as a top federal prosecutor and chief counsel and staff director for the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations earned him the support of our 36,000 members,” said Rivera. “Public safety and protecting Floridians has been a priority of Dan’s long before his service in the Legislature. I am confident, as our next attorney general, it will be his mission to work in partnership with the law enforcement community to keep our streets safe and take on those who aim to harm Floridians.”
