Slosberg endorses 2006 rival Deutch for 2010 congressional race

by George Bennett | November 10th, 2009

Former state Rep. Irving Slosberg of Boca Raton, who lost a bitter and costly 2006 Democratic state Senate primary to Ted Deutch, told the Kings Point Democratic Club today that he’s endorsing Deutch in the special election to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton.

That ends speculation that Slosberg might run for the congressional seat himself.

The Democratic primary is Feb. 2 and the general election is April 6.

“Ted and I have become pretty good friends,” Slosberg said afterward. “He represents the things I represent. So send him to Congress. He’s going to do a great job.”

While out of the special congressional race, Slosberg remains a potential candidate for his old state House seat or the state Senate next year.

    Who cares who the windbag Slosberg endorses? What a turkey.

  2. GeorgeG Says:

    That’s a real stand-up thing to do, Irv. Doubt Wexler would ever do anything like that.

    This is going to be fun! Irv endorses Deutch, Wexler endorses everyone…And we are left with nada. District 30 is going to be left with who? The blonde, who is clueless, the aide to Deutch…Tara she is hot, the Irv or the guy who’s wife is a rabbi or maybe Wexler has a relative that needs a job.

    This whole county is a joke.

  5. Bill Says:

    I have the headline for this story

    Hell freezes over- Irv Slosberg endorses Ted Deutsch.

  6. Due diligence Says:

    Irv hopes Deutch will endorse him for senate if he goes to Washington. Poor Irv. There is no honor amongst thieves.Be prepared to be thrown under the bus again.

  7. Endorsements matter??? Says:

    Why does all this endorsement stacking matter anyway?

    Is the audience at King’s Point Democratic Club completely incapable of making a decision, as individuals, as to who is best to represent them in Congress? Do they really need Irv or Wexler or any other careerist/hobby politician to tell them who they should vote for?

    Endorsement stacking is utterly idiotic. These people have created a closed primary system so the “voters”, the ones registered with the party, could decide, but they go an undermine it by this endorsement stacking nonsense. If they want to endorse, they should go to open primaries.
