The Florida Education Association is the latest in the series of endorsements for the sole Democrat in the House District 15 race, Tracye Polson.
In a statement from the Polson campaign Wednesday morning, the candidate said the FEA is “on the front lines, fighting for an equitable and fair education system,” and vowed to stand along side the 140,000 member group in the fight to “properly fund and improve our public education system.”
As well, the Democrat is winning the money race over her GOP rivals, with $118,000 cash on hand as of the end of May.
Of the GOP field, Wyman Duggan had $111,000 cash on hand, with Mark Zeigler over $30,000 and Joseph Hogan with just under $7,000.
Polson, at least through August, can concentrate on building infrastructure. The Republicans in the field are slogging through a series of forums, including one held just this week, as they vie for the party’s nomination.
