Former U.S. AG Janet Reno endorses Dan Gelber for state AGby Dara Kam | August 12th, 2009
“Dan has the gumption and spirit to make the Attorney General’s office a vital force in the lives of Floridians,” Reno said in a press release issued today, saying Gelber would make a “splendid” AG.
Gelber, a former federal prosecutor from Miami Beach, is running in a primary against fellow Democratic state senator Dave Aronberg of Greenacres to replace Attorney General Bill McCollum, who is leaving office after one term to run for governor.
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp is the leading GOP candidate in the race so far.
Reno, a Miami native, served under President Bill Clinton as the first female U.S. Attorney General.
