The Tampa Bay chapter of the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida on Monday endorsed St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman for re-election.

The group in a press release said that Kriseman has been at the "forefront of significant and meaningful environmental policy" and understands that "climate change from global warming is a real, man-made threat to the people and property of St. Petersburg."

By contrast, they called out Kriseman's main opponent, former mayor Rick Baker, for holding a "destructive, ultra-conservative view of uncertainty about global warming."
