Johnson wins State Troopers' endorsement



State Representative and Republican candidate for Chief Financial Officer Randy Johnson announced Friday that he has picked up the endorsement of Florida's state troopers through their union, the International Union of Police Associations (IUPA), which represents 120,000 active and retired law enforcement officers.

This is the third endorsement for Johnson by a first responders group. Johnson also has the endorsement of the firefighter's union and the Fraternal Order of Police.
