Retailers endorse Loranne Ausley in HD 9

The Florida Retail Federation Political Action Committee has endorsed Democrat Loranne Ausley for House District 9.

“Loranne supported retailers during her previous term in the House, and we’re eager to work with her again as the new representative for District 9,” FRF President and CEO Randy Miller said in a Thursday statement.

Ausley faces Republican candidate and Tallahassee attorney Jim Messer in the November general election.

Both seek to replace the term-limited Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda in the seat. Ausley, also an attorney, herself held the seat from 2000-08 until she was term-limited.

She has since served as chair of the Florida Healthy Kids Corporation, which provides health insurance for children.

The district traditionally swings Democrat: It’s entirely within Leon County, where registered Democrats currently outnumber Republicans by a roughly 2-1 margin.
