New Video: Congressman Steve Southerland’s Washington Way

With the general election now underway in Florida’s 2nd Congressional District, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is releasing a new web video: “Congressman Steve Southerland’s Washington Way.”

The video highlights how North Floridians are speaking out against Congressman Southerland’s Washington politics that are hurting seniors, students, women and working families, and comes on the heels of a developing scandal surrounding his ties to Sugar Lobbyists and his visit to King Ranch – where Congressman Southerland’s sugar lobbyists backers hosted at least one secret meeting with Florida lawmakers.   

“Congressman Steve Southerland’s scandal surrounding his sugar lobbyist backers is only the latest example in his long record of partisan and self-interested Washington politics,” said David Bergstein of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Congressman Southerland’s Washington Way is to complain that his taxpayer funded salary isn’t enough – and then try to force seniors, students and working families to pay more. North Floridians are speaking out against Congressman Southerland because his dysfunctional politics are exactly what they hate about Congress.”
