United States Senator
It’s no surprise that Bill Nelson has always fought for Florida first. His Florida roots run deep. He’s a fifth-generation Floridian whose family home was just a few miles from where he was launched into orbit in 1986 as a crew member of the Space Shuttle Columbia. From his home in Melbourne, Florida in the 1950s and 1960s, he could see missiles and rockets blasting off from what is now the Kennedy Space Center.
Representative, Congressional District 17
The year 2017 will likely go down in history as one of the most dysfunctional years in Congress. We have a President who feels he’s above the law and who has the lowest approval rating of any sitting President in the history of approval ratings, and sexual assault seems to have become an epidemic across the nation.
Andrew Gillum is running for Governor to rebuild Florida into a state that works for all of us. He knows everyone deserves good-paying jobs so they can support their families. He wants to protect and expand Floridians’ access to quality, affordable healthcare, especially people with pre-existing conditions. He knows we need to strengthen our public schools and end the culture of high-stakes testing.

Commissioner of Agriculture
Nicole “Nikki” Fried
“Our politics and our government are broken. I’m running for Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services because Tallahassee needs leadership that will actually serve the people of Florida and listen to what the people want. I have fought for our public schools, foster children and access to medical marijuana for the sick and vulnerable, including our veterans and seniors.” – Nikki Fried
