Democratic Candidate for Attorney General Ryan Torrens announced Florida State Representative John Cortes, Florida District 43, is endorsing his campaign. “As a retired corrections officer and a state legislator, I fully endorse Ryan for this important cabinet position. He has a comprehensive understanding of the issues facing Floridians, from consumer rights to the opioid crisis. I am confident if Ryan is elected, he will fight to protect all Floridians.”

Torrens proudly received the endorsement: “Representative Cortes fights everyday for his constituents for better jobs and better education, and I am proud to have his support in this race,” Torrens said. “We need more champions for everyday Floridians, and with his support, we will take our message to all 67 counties so that we can have an attorney general who will fight for our people and stand up to the special interests.”

Torrens is the only Democratic candidate officially declared in this race, facing State Representative Jay Fant, who represents Jacksonville’s 15th District and former Hillsborough County Circuit Court Judge, Ashley Moody.
