State Senator Darren Soto has announced that his campaign for Congress in Florida’s 9th District has been endorsed by California Congressman Scott Peters.
“Senator Darren Soto is a proven leader who understands that we must fight to create high-quality jobs and expand economic opportunity in a way that leaves no one behind.” said Peters. “As a member of the New Democrat Coalition I am proud to endorse Darren Soto for Congress, and look forward to fighting with him to bring real progress for central Florida and all of America.”
Soto is running for the Congressional seat that opened up after incumbent Alan Grayson announced he was running for senate. He faces opposition from Grayson’s Wife, Dr. Dena Grayson, his former District Director Susannah Randolph, and Businesswoman Valleri Crabtree.
“I am eager to work with Scott Peters in Congress and greatly appreciate his support of my candidacy,” said Soto. “Scott and I are similar in that we are about action not just talk. We like to solve problems and bring coalitions of people together to get results.”
