Democratic congressional candidate David Holden has revealed a slew of Democratic endorsements in the primary race for the Florida 19th Congressional District race, according to a Holden campaign press release.

The endorsements include Javier Estevez, Democratic candidate running for Florida House District 105 (interior Collier and Miami-Dade counties) and Sara McFadden, Democratic candidate in Florida House District 106 (coastal Collier County).

Todd Truax, Holden’s rival in the 2018 congressional primary race, is now running for the Lee County Board of Commissioners District 3 (southern Lee County). Holden has endorsed Truax’s bid.

Holden also announced endorsements from two community activists: W. Earl Sparrow Jr., a community organizer in Lee County; and Crystal Johnson, president of the Community Forum Foundation, a Fort Myers-based non-profit foundation helping children and families.
