Beth Tuura racks up endorsements in Florida House race

Beth Tuura, candidate currently for House District 47 in Florida, was endorsed today by Rep. Victor Torres of neighboring District 48.  
“Beth Tuura is the woman we need to fight for working families in Florida. She is the type of person who will get things done, and that is why I proudly endorse her for State Representative,” Torres said in a statement. Torres’ endorsement joins a growing list of impressive names that have thrown their support behind Tuura. These other endorsements include: 

Former District 47 Rep. Linda Stewart  

Equality Florida Action 

Bob Poe, Congressional candidate and former Florida Democratic Party Chair 

Florida National Organization of Women PAC 


A businesswoman with many years of broadcast experience, Tuura could make history as Florida’s first openly lesbian legislator. As stated by Florida Equality in their endorsement statement, “[she] knows how to break glass ceilings.”  
Tuura strongly supports reproductive justice, protections for LGBTQ citizens and expanding Medicaid.  
“I have no doubt that she will act as a strong voice for the people of District 47 and will be an effective force in Tallahassee,” said Poe, who is a Victory-endorsed Congressional candidate.
