EMILY’s List is backing state Rep. Michele Rayner for Florida’s 13th Congressional District.
The organization works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights with more than five million members. EMILY’s List applauded Rayner for her service as a public defender and her work in her own law firm, where she advocates for civil rights.
“She has earned a reputation as a powerful advocate for Floridians whose voices too often go unheard in the halls of power,” Laphonza Butler, president of EMILY’s List, said.
Rayner faces fellow state Rep. Ben Diamond and Eric Lynn in the CD 13 Democratic Primary.
