Nikki Fried Gets The Democratic Nod for Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Nikki Fried has officially taken the Democratic race to become Florida’s next Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Fried was able to quite handedly defeat her Democratic opposition in a three-way race. She will now faceoff with the Republican in the General Election.
Commenting on her Primary Election win, Fried said: “I’m honored that Florida Democrats have put their faith in me to finally elect a Democrat to the office of Agriculture Commissioner. Florida needs new leadership at the Department who will advocate for expanded patient access to medical marijuana, fix Adam Putnam’s failures in overseeing concealed weapons permits, and work to protect both consumers and our clean water, land and coasts.”
Fried was backed by dozens of current and retired elected officials statewide, four major newspapers, organizations like Ruth’s List and Women’s March Florida, multiple unions, and many more.
