African-Americans for Smith



We neglected to post (and heard about it) Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rod Smith's touting more than 100 African-American leaders backing Smith. Not sure how many are new names, but you can see the full list in comments. U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek: "Rod Smith has long been a friend of the African American community.  First as a State Attorney, and later in the Florida Senate, Rod has taken a strong stance and achieved substantive changes to promote justice and equality in our communities.  I am proud to support Rod in his campaign for Governor.''
