DCCC Chairman Steve Israel Statement on FL-02

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement on the FL-02 election:

“Congressman Steve Southerland’s self-interested, partisan politics are exactly what North Floridians hate about Congress – and the latest scandal surrounding his special interest backers is just the latest proof. Congressman Southerland voted against reopening the government – even when both parties came together to end the shutdown – and complained that his own taxpayer funded salary wasn’t enough while Florida families struggled to get by. Those two examples alone explain why so many North Floridians are rejecting Congressman Southerland, and why Gwen Graham’s plan to bring the North Florida Way back to Washington is resonating so strongly across the district.”
