Florida Realtors Endorse GOP Cabinet Ticket, State Legislative Candidates

On Wednesday, the Florida Realtors announced their support for the Republican ticket running for state Cabinet offices.

Through the Florida Realtors PAC, the group backed the entire GOP ticket: former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., for governor; former Judge Ashley Moody for attorney general; keeping state CFO Jimmy Patronis in office; and state Rep. Matt Caldwell, R-Lehigh Acres, for agriculture commissioner.

“As realtors, we pride ourselves on our long-standing efforts to defend private property rights, promote community prosperity and preserve a professional climate that ensures the economic growth of Florida,” says Ann DeFries, the chairwoman of Florida Realtors PAC Trustees. “Our continued success in these efforts involves elected officials who share these beliefs and will work with our 180,000+ members to help Floridians and their communities thrive.”

“Candidates were evaluated on numerous factors, including their voting record on issues that are relevant to the real estate profession,” the PAC noted.

They also made the following state Senate endorsements, listed by district:

59. Joe Wicker
