The first full week of January ushered in a host of elected officials that FNM supported in the 2012 elections.

These new champions of justice include U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia (CD-26) and U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy (CD-18); Florida State Senators Dwight Bullard (SD-39), Darren Soto (SD-14), and Maria Sachs (SD-34);  and Florida State Representatives Jeff Clemens (HD -89), Jose Javier Rodriguez (HD 112) and Joe Saunders(HD-49).
