Thurman Statement on Bud Chiles Withdrawing From Governor’s Race
Florida Democratic Party Chair Karen Thurman released the following statement reacting to Bud Chiles announcement that he is withdrawing from the Governor’s race:
“During his campaign for governor, Bud Chiles reminded Floridians of the values he and his family have dedicated lifetimes of service to our state fighting for — such as cleaning up the Republican culture of corruption in Tallahassee, working to improve Florida’s public schools, and advocating for children across the Sunshine State.
“By withdrawing from the race and supporting Alex Sink, Bud allows Floridians to be fully united behind Alex, the new and different leader we need to bring jobs to our state using her 26 years of business experience.”
