Momentum is building behind Naomi Blemur’s campaign for Agriculture Commissioner, which now has support from state Sen. Annette Taddeo.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Blemur’s campaign announced that the former Democratic gubernatorial candidate turned congressional candidate has endorsed Blemur in a longshot campaign to deny Senate President Wilton Simpson’s bid for Agriculture Commissioner.
Blemur is a first-generation Haitian American minister, businesswoman and consultant. If elected, she would be the first Haitian American to lead the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and the first Haitian American on the Florida Cabinet.
“As a prominent member of our South Florida community and businesswoman, I know that Dr. Naomi Blemur not only has the vision and the drive necessary to win this race but to also lead our state forward,” Taddeo said in a statement.
