US Senator from Vermont

“Today I had the opportunity to meet with Senator Bernie Sanders. Senator Sanders is a champion for all these values, as am I. I’m truly honored to receive his endorsement and I will continue to fight for ALL working families – regardless race, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability – to ensure that we don’t reserve the American Dream for only a select few or allow it fade away.”

“I am proud to announce my endorsement of Dr. Lee Mangold for Florida House of Representatives, District 28. Over the last year, I have seen Lee build a grassroots campaign with the support of his community. He is deeply connected to Seminole County—he grew up there, went to the local public schools, and started his family and his business there. He understands the needs of his community and is the best choice to represent them in the state legislature. Lee will be a leader and a fighter for the people of District 28!”

“The reason I decided I wanted to jump on to Lee’s team and very proudly say that I was supporting his race and his campaign is not only because he’s such a passionate advocate for the issues we care about, it wasn’t only because like me – and like many of you – he has a major problem with the Florida Legislature spending $67M on the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas School Safety Act to train and arm teachers and faculty in our public schools, but I’m also supporting Lee because he has a very strong campaign, he has a community of support, I’m impressed even by the fact we have such a great great community turnout here in the district he’s running in, but also I’m supporting Lee Mangold because I know that he can win!”

It is my absolute honor, to endorse Lee Mangold for Florida House 28. Lee is Exactly what both Central Florida and more importantly, Tallahassee need at the moment in my opinion, and would be a great representative for both!


This man has a tireless work ethic and one of the very few that is a non-career politician. Lee is an “every man” simply looking to represent EVERYONE! That’s what drew me to Lee the most; he is a family man simply looking to do what he can to help his fellow neighbor by representing them on a much larger scale. He’s not the type to play the game of using political office simply as “ another wrung on the ladder.” He feels that he can do what he has previously done, on a larger scale, and I admire that greatly in a candidate! It’s what makes him more relatable than pretty much anybody else out there in my opinion. “

Lee is a trusted leader who will represent his district and the State of Florida with honor and integrity in Tallahassee.”

“Lee is a champion for public education, a sustainable environment, and working families across the state of Florida. With a background in business, cybersecurity, and education, Lee has the experience to be a true voice for his community.
