Latest from the Great Summer 2009 Endorsement Brag...

23

September

The calendar says fall, but the Great Summer 2009 Endorsement Brag continues, with Democratic AG candidate Dan Gelber of Miami Beach releasing the latest press release about the latest endorsement - this time from several northeast Florida Dems including Florida House Reps. Audrey Gibson and Mia Jones.

This is not to be outdone by fellow Dem and fellow AG candidate Dave Aronberg, whose camp is quick to say something along the likes of Oh yeah, well Aronberg has gotten all these endorsements from law enforcement. Where are Gelber's?

Well, Gelber's camp would count former U.S. Attorney Janet Reno as the mother of all law enforcement endorsements.

Aronberg's latest nod came from Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden, who joins Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whiddon, and St.Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara in backing Aronberg, D-Greenacres.

The back-and-forth comes as Gelber's camp touts a Chamber poll as giving Gelber a lead over Aronberg, but even a Chamber official said the poll "doesn't really tell you anything."
