Davis picks up 95 in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties



The Jim Davis campaign on Thursday announced the support of 95 community and political leaders from Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.

“He’s got the vision, the toughness and the experience to bring the new, independent leadership we need in Tallahassee to get our state moving in the right direction again," said North Miami Mayor Kevin Burns. "His vision and experience also make him the Democrat who can win in November.”

Names include former State Senator Roberta Fox; Miami Beach City Commissioner Simon Cruz; the Rev. Hugh Westbrook; and businesswoman Jessica Goldman-Srebnick. See the full list in comments. Some of the names are familiar; they have already endorsed Davis. But spokeswoman Danae Jones said many are new, adding, "this is a roll out of the entire group."
