Ten Pinellas County-based elected officials are backing Eunic Ortiz in her run for Senate District 24, where she hopes to replace out-going Sen. Jeff Brandes.
The list of endorsers include state Rep. Michele Rayner, as well as Pinellas County Commissioners Rene Flowers and Pat Gerard.
St. Pete Beach Mayor Alan Johnson, St. Pete Council member Deborah Figgs–Sanders and St. Pete Council member-elect Richie Floyd also joined in as endorsers.
The heavily Democratic endorsements come as Ortiz remains the only Democrat in the SD 24 race, which the left is hoping to flip in 2022. Ortiz faces front-runner Republican Rep. Nick DiCeglie.
