[UPDATE] The endorsements are rolling in for State Senator Jeff Clemens in redrawn District 31*

Update—The latest from Florida Politics about Jeff Clemens' challenger:

     Rep. Irv Slosberg has dropped another $50,000 of his personal wealth into his Senate District 31 campaign, bringing his self-funding to a significant total of $170,000 in loans, new campaign reports show. [and. . .] Clemens, who has criticized Slosberg for not living in the Senate district, sent out a fundraising appeal Thursday again questioning Slosberg’s motives.
     “Fact: my opponent isn’t a progressive, and he’s really not much of a Democrat, either,” Clemens wrote.

From an earlier article in Florida Politics: “It’s humbling to know other elected officials and advocacy organizations have confidence in the job I’m doing,” Clemens said. “Especially in places like Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, where I haven’t represented them previously.” Here is Clemens' partial list of endorsements:
  • State Representative Dave Kerner
  • State Representative Bobby Powell
  • County Commissioner Shelley Vana
  • County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay
  • Former County Commissioner Burt Aaronson
  • School Board Member Erica Whitfield
  • Boynton Beach Vice Mayor Mack McCray
