State Representative Javier Fernandez received the endorsement of former President Barack Obama in his race for reelection as State Representative in Florida’s 114th District.

“It is an honor to receive President Obama’s endorsement and know that he believes in our campaign and our fight for sensible gun control, affordable housing for working families and seniors, high-quality public education, and addressing the effects of climate-change in our state,” said State Representative Fernandez.

“With over 6,000 races on the ballot this year, we are excited to join forces with President Obama to highlight the amazing men and women like State Representative Javier Fernandez running in must-watch races for their state legislatures,” said Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) Executive Director Jessica Post. “We stand united and will do everything we can to elect candidates like Representative Fernandez who will stand up for democratic values and work to move our nation forward.”
