Two more endorsements came out today for Florida Attorney General.
GOP-Tea Party candidate Pam Bondi got her anti-health care lawsuit endorsement from National Federation of Independent Business, a plaintiff in that lawsuit.
Democrat Dan Gelber, on the other hand, got an endorsement from the Florida Nurses Association.
From The Tampa Tribune:
The candidates for Attorney General have both won endorsements because of their stances on the state’s challenge to the federal health care reform.
Republican Attorney General nominee Pam Bondi’s pledge to continue the challenge has won her the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business.
“Floridians do not want and cannot afford this unconstitutional federal health care law, which I believe is the most expansive entitlement program ever created,” Bondi said.
The NFIB is a plaintiff in the lawsuit currently being heard in Pensacola.
Gelber’s support for the healthcare legislation that went into effect last week won him support from the Florida Nurses Association.
“Dan Gelber has been a long time advocate for Florida families and our members know we can count on him to fight the rampant Medicaid fraud in Florida that is costing taxpayers billions and limiting access to quality medical care for our most vulnerable citizens,” FNA President Andrea Gregg said.
Gelber has called the healthcare lawsuit frivolous and has predicted the federal government would prevail.
“Our nurses see on a daily basis how accessibility to quality medical care can make a world of difference in a person’s life, and I look forward to working with them to fight Medicaid fraud so that we can reduce costs to taxpayers and provide more Floridians with the care they need,” Gelber said.
