Dr. Christensen said “I’m profoundly grateful for the support of these courageous Democrats across Florida. They fought to build up Democrats and gave hope for change across our state. I asked them to run for office at a critical time and to give voice to Democratic values everywhere. They stood up to the challenge. I am standing up now because they asked me to.
