Florida Realtors PAC Endorses Primary Candidates

Which candidates running in Fla.’s primary support the real estate industry? Florida Realtors PAC looks at various factors, including voting records on real estate issues.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida Realtors® PAC made the majority of its Florida Senate and House candidate endorsements for the 2022 primary election Thursday.

Florida Realtors PAC isn’t Republican or Democrat – it’s real estate. It’s simply a strong voice – and sometimes the only strong voice – advocating in Tallahassee for Florida’s Realtors and homeowners. It analyzes candidates for office by looking at a range of criteria, including past votes that have supported the real estate industry.

“Florida continues to be an economic beacon of success for the nation, largely due to the perseverance and growth of its real estate industry,” says Danny Nix, chair of Florida Realtors PAC Trustees. “This success has been driven by sound economic policy from our state leaders who understand the important link between Florida’s economy and its real estate industry. The candidates being endorsed today have demonstrated that they understand this connection and will work tirelessly to enact laws and policies that promote homeownership and protect the rights of homeowners throughout the state.”
