Republican candidate for Governor Ron DeSantis picked up an endorsement from Florida’s largest police union. 

The Florida Police Benevolent Association is throwing its support behind Republican Ron DeSantis in the race for Florida’s governorship.

PBA president John Kazanjian said in a statement “Ron DeSantis understands the dangers our officers face, in our prisons and on our streets.”

Last election cycle, the PBA favored Democrat Charlie Crist over Republican incumbent Governor Rick Scott.

Earlier Wednesday, DeSantis’s opponent, Democrat Andrew Gillum, announced the endorsement of five Florida sheriffs.
