Smith picks up Palm Beach County endorsement



The Voters Coalition of Palm Beach County today announced its support of Rod Smith for Governor. “Rod Smith’s knowledge of Florida’s government was a big factor in our choice. His ability to work across party lines and get things done in Tallahassee, as well as his message of straight talk for Florida, won us over as a group," said chairman Bob Newmark.

Palm Beach County is the third largest county in the Democratic Party. Smith grew up there and went to public school at Seacrest High School and Palm Beach County Community College before moving to Alachua, where he now lives with his wife DeeDee.
