The National Organization for Women has endorsed Nan Rich in the Florida governor’s race.
According to a news release from Rich, the endorsement was announced at a Rich campaign event in Broward County by national NOW President Terry O’Neill, who cited Rich’s support for child care and help for families; economic equality; and women’s health care, including access to reproductive healthcare.
Rich is the dark horse in a Democratic primary against former Gov. Charlie Crist. However, some Democrats, particularly including the party’s feminist and liberal factions, have been reluctant to accept Crist, a former Republican, as their candidate.
