Ruth’s List Florida is backing Pinellas County Commissioner Pat Gerard as she seeks reelection for the District 2 seat.
The organization works to elect Democratic, pro-choice women in Florida. This is Ruth’s List’s third endorsement of Gerard, who took the seat in 2014.
“We were honored to endorse Pat when she flipped this Pinellas County Commission seat from red to blue in 2014, and are once again proud to lend our support to her re-election bid,” said Lucy Sedgwick, president and CEO of Ruth’s List Florida.
Two Republicans — Brian Scott and Debbie Buschman — are running in hopes of unseating the incumbent.
