POLK COUNTY (FLV) – Thursday, the Kelli Stargel campaign announced that Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is supporting her for Congress.
“I am proud to stand with Kelli Stargel because she is the proven conservative who is the best qualified and most experienced legislatively to represent us in Congress,” Judd said. “Kelli stood up to the defund the police movement and had our backs to ensure Florida communities remained safe.”
“Kelli has consistently delivered for law enforcement, for our hard working families and for our values.”
Judd was recently celebrated at the Florida Sheriffs Association Summer Conference for spending 50 years in law enforcement.
“I’d also like to send a very special congratulations to a Florida law enforcement legend, and my dear friend, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, on 50 years of service. What an amazing career milestone for a tremendous public servant. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your commitment and sacrifice to the communities that you serve,” Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said.
At the GOP’s Sunshine Summit, District 15 candidates engaged in a primary debate where Stargel shared her accomplishments as a state senator. She listed off how she sponsored Florida’s 15-week abortion ban and filed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. Stargel said she has been pushing for school choice for the last 14 years.
“Kelli Stargel has been a conservative hero, standing up for our values and leading the fight to protect the unborn,” Simpson said. “Kelli has taken on Democrats in Tallahassee to protect girls’ sports, keep gender ideology out of our classrooms and stood firm when ideologues attacked parents’ rights to make decisions for their children.”
Stargel is running in a packed primary against Laurel Lee, Jackie Toledo, Kevin McGovern, and Demetries Grimes.
