MIRAMAR, FL—Today, The Palm Beach Post’s Editorial Board wholeheartedly endorsed Dr. Barbara Sharief for Florida’s 20th Congressional District. 


“The Palm Beach Post believes Barbara Sharief is the best choice in the Nov. 2 Democratic primary, and we recommend Democrats choose her as their nominee. She possesses the life experience and professional and political backgrounds that best meet the district’s needs,” writes the Palm Beach Post Editorial Board. “Her work ethic as a candidate is also impressive and speaks well as to how she would represent district constituents… As someone whose father was a victim of gun violence, issues such as gun safety, criminal justice and voting rights are also important to her.” 


“Our community is in desperate need of strong leadership in Washington, and I’m honored to have The Palm Beach Post endorse me for the job,” said Dr. Barbara Sharief. “In Congress I will be a relentless voice for workers and families, fighting for a $15 minimum wage and affordable healthcare for all. I look forward to serving my community and am proud to have The Palm Beach Post’s endorsement.” 


Dr. Barbara Sharief is a candidate for U.S. Congress in Florida’s 20th Congressional District. Barbara specializes in critical care and pediatrics and used her skills to open her own pediatric and adult homecare service, where she employs over 200 frontline heroes. Barbara has served as Broward County Commissioner for 11 years, and made history as not only Broward County’s first Black female mayor but also the first Black female President of the Florida Association of Counties. Barbara was born and raised in South Florida and has three beautiful daughters.
