Maurice Ferre, Who Backed Rick Scott in 2010, Endorses Nan Rich
Former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre endorsed former Florida Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich for governor on Wednesday. After an underwhelming bid for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination, Ferre crossed party lines to endorse Republican Rick Scott in 2010. Rich is an underdog against former Gov. Charlie Crist in next months Democratic primary.
Im strongly supporting Nan Rich because she is the candidate with a clear vision for Floridas future that genuinely puts the needs of people first, Ferre said. Her unwavering commitment to improving Floridas public schools, fighting for social justice, and protecting individual rights, clearly demonstrate her character and priorities. She is exactly the kind of person and leader we need as our governor.
I am sincerely honored to have Mayor Ferres support and endorsement, Rich said. His vision and leadership inspired confidence, stimulated investment, and reshaped the face of Miami. As the first Hispanic mayor of a major American city, he also opened the door of opportunity for all who followed. His experience and insight will be a valuable asset to our campaign.
