State Senator Darren Soto announced on Wednesday the endorsement of Mayor Eugene Fultz of Lake Wales in his campaign to be the next member of Congress from Florida’s 9th District.
“Darren Soto is the kind of guy who is a true public servant. I trust that he will work hard to make Polk County even better than we already are by helping to build our infrastructure and bring high paying jobs to our community,” said Fultz. “As Mayor of Lake Wales, I know that Darren will support us, and am proud to endorse him for Congress.”
Soto is currently running for the Orange/Osceola county seat that opened after incumbent Alan Grayson announced he was running for Senate. He faces opposition from Grayson’s Wife, Dr. Dena Grayson, former District Director Susannah Randolph, and Businesswoman Valleri Crabtree.
“It’s been an honor to work with Mayor Fultz to improve education, our environment and our infrastructure in Polk County,” said Soto. “I look forward to continuing our good work to bring more high paying jobs and a higher quality of life to Polk!”
