Gannon backs Gelber in AG race over local Sen. Aronberg

by George Bennett | June 17th, 2009

Snaring an endorsement from his rival’s back yard, state Sen. Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach, announced today that he has received the support of Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon in the Democratic primary for attorney general.

Gannon is a former Democratic legislator who served with Gelber in the state House from 2000 to 2006. She also served in the Palm Beach County legislative delegation with state Sen. Dave Aronberg, D-Greenacres, who’s running against Gelber in the Democratic AG primary.

“I served with Dan Gelber and he is the definition of a leader,” Gannon said in a statement released by the Gelber campaign. “He has the unique combination of force and personality that brings people together and empathy to be able to understand the needs and struggles of everyday Floridians.”

    Gelber deserves this endorsement and so many others. He is a fantastic leader and will be a true advocate for all Floridians. Go Gelber!

    I like both Arronberg and Gelber, but I liked what I saw in Dan Gelber at the Jefferson Jackson dinner.

    He’s got my support.

    No one cares about Gannon’s endorsement, give me a break. Aronberg is a bright, rising star unlike Gelber who has run for three offices in the last six months.

    Senator Dave Aronberg has my vote — I think he is the best candidate to win statewide office with his background. It’s time a democrat took that Cabinet position back.
