Equality Florida Action PAC 2018 Endorsements

 

Equality Florida Action PAC plays a lead role in placing LGBTQ-related issues where they belong – in the mainstream of Florida politics. Our endorsement decisions take into account: Support for LGBT issues and past voting record on those issues; competitiveness of campaign; support from the community; and we place a special emphasis on electing qualified LGBT candidates who bring an all too rare perspective to elected office. In races where multiple candidates meet our criteria, it is possible no endorsement will be made.
