Commissioner Fried on Florida Attorney General Joining Texas Election Suit

Dec 9, 2020

Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, the Attorney General of Florida announced that Florida would join an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to consider Texas’ motion to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, an independently-elected member of the Florida Cabinet and Clemency Board, offered the following statement:

“It’s embarrassing to the integrity of our democracy and resolution of this election. It’s disappointing, but predictable, that Florida’s Attorney General isn’t acting in the interest of the people she was elected to serve, but in self-interest to a president who lost an election and cannot face the reality of his defeat.”
