More sheriffs back Denise Grimsley for Ag Commissioner
Sebring Sen. Denise Grimsley has added two more lawmen to her stable of supporters in the four-way Republican primary to succeed term-limited Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam
Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis and Sumter County Sheriff William Farmer were the new additions. They join 29 other county sheriffs in declaring their support for the 14-year state lawmaker.
“We know that Denise is prepared to make the tough calls on Day One in office and that she will do what it takes to hold criminals and fraudsters accountable with the help of Florida law enforcement,” Nienhuis said. “Her passion for Florida and protecting its citizens is unparalleled and I stand behind her 100 percent.”
Farmer added, “Denise has been a consistent champion of law enforcement and I know that as Florida’s next Commissioner of Agriculture she will stand by us more than ever. I look forward to lending her my endorsement and spreading the word in the law enforcement community that Denise is the right candidate for the job.”
Grimsley said it was a “true privilige to say that more than 30 of Florida’s sheriffs have endorsed our campaign for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture.”
