REPS WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, HASTINGS ENDORSE CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT

Join other South Florida and Tampa leaders in supporting Hillary for President

The Clinton Campaign today announced the endorsements of leading Florida elected officials, including Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Congressman Alcee Hastings.

“We need a leader with a clear vision and sound judgment, who can work with a Democratic Congress to renew the promise of America. Hillary is that leader,” Rep. Wasserman Schultz said.

Rep. Hastings said, “When we elect the next President Clinton, this country will be a much better place for the African-American community, Floridians and all Americans.”

Both Reps. Wasserman Schultz and Hastings serve in the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives, and Hastings is the Vice Chair of Florida’s congressional delegation.

Former Tampa Mayor Sandy Freedman also endorsed Tuesday, saying “Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate of either party in this race, and that's why she's going to be elected.”

“I am grateful for the overwhelming support I’ve received in Florida,” Senator Hillary Clinton said. “These local leaders will be vital to our efforts to renew America’s promise.”
