We're proud to announce that SAVE Action PAC endorses Florida's first elected openly gay state legislator, State Representative David Richardson, for Florida's 35th State Senate seat in 2016!
Representative Richardson exceeded all expectations after his historic election in 2012. He has served in Tallahassee admirably on behalf of not only the 113th House District but also the greater South Florida LGBT community.
As a member of the Florida House of Representatives, Rep. Richardson fought to provide state funding to tackle the problem of homelessness among LGBT youth.
He also spearheaded changes that have added protections for LGBT children and teenagers in the state foster care system, and he was an outspoken supporter of pro-equality leaders during the 2014 election cycle.
In December, Richardson became the first openly LGBT individual to serve in a leadership position in the Florida legislature when the House Democratic Caucus selected him as Floor Leader. We couldn't be prouder to support his bid for the State Senate.
Today's announcement comes as part of SAVE Action PAC's strategy to support pro-equality leaders early and often to ensure victory come Election Day -- and we'll need YOUR help to win!
