In yet another sign that the Republican primary race for governor has a clear frontrunner, the Florida Medical Association PAC endorsed U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis, the beneficiary of President Donald Trump offering unambiguous endorsement Tuesday at a Tampa rally, now will enjoy the backing of the state’s self-described “leading advocate for electing pro-medicine candidates.”

FMA PAC President Dr. Mike Patete noted that the FMA PAC is “the first statewide association to endorse” DeSantis, “a true friend of medicine” who “will represent Florida’s more than 22,000 physicians on issues impacting our patients, policies and the quality and availability of health care.”

DeSantis, “proud to have the endorsement of the Florida Medical Association and all of the physicians the organization represents,” anticipates “working with the FMA to find ways to make the doctor-patient relationship stronger and to reduce costs.”
