Torrens Rebuts Opponent's Frivolous Lawsuit

Raises Primary Challenger’s Past Campaign Finance Violations Last week, my primary opponent made the decision to file a frivolous lawsuit against my campaign in an attempt to win this election through the courts rather than the ballot box. In this case, his decision to suddenly transform what had been a positive campaign by using our courts as a political attack weapon was off-target – factually and even as a matter of basic decency. As he will now see (and could have learned if he’d only had the decency to ask before attacking): • The innocent individual whose alleged contribution he targeted is my wife; • The check he cited was drawn on our joint account; • So the bottom line is this was a

TORRENS PROMISES TO END THE STATE’S DEFENSE OF STAND YOUR GROUND

Pledges to stand with Florida’s minority community leaders to shut down NRA backed law. TAMPA, Fla – Monday, Ryan Torrens, Democratic candidate for Florida Attorney General, issued a statement in response to the killing of Markeis McGlocklan and the use of Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law to keep his killer from justice. “It is a tragedy that keeps happening over and over again in our state, especially to our minority communities, and something must be done to end this bad law,” said Torrens. “Our politicians and the NRA have now made it much easier for violent criminals to hide behind Florida’s Stand Your Ground law to get away with murder. I stand with our prosecutors, judges, and our minor

No scheduled public debates among candidates for Florida’s top legal job? That’s weird.

See the original article post here: https://www.floridaphoenix.com/blog/no-scheduled-public-debates-among-candidates-for-floridas-top-legal-job-thats-weird/ It’s July already, and polls say most people don’t yet know who they will vote for in the August 28 Republican primary for Florida Attorney General – the state’s top legal job. Anyone looking to learn more about the two Republicans and two Democrats vying for Attorney General through a public debate is out of luck, at least as of today. The two Republican candidates hoping to succeed the state’s sitting Attorney General, Pam Bondi, are Ashley Moody and State Rep. Frank White. The two Democratic candidates are Tampa Rep. Sean Shaw and Hil


4016 HENDERSON BLVD |SUITE D | TAMPA, FL 33618

Thank you for visiting our page! I am a consumer protection attorney who defends Florida homeowners in foreclosure and sues big banks, debt collectors, and other big corporations for ripping people off.

On June 1, 2017, I announced my candidacy for Florida Attorney General. Believing that how much justice you get should not depend on how much money you have, I ran on a platform of fighting for everyday Floridians and standing up to big corporate interests. During our 15 month campaign, I followed through on our pledge to refuse even one penny in big corporate campaign contributions. Though we fell short, we are proud of the grassroots campaign we ran and over 365,000 Floridians joined our cause and voted for our campaign. On election night, I promised to never stop fighting and I asked you to never stop fighting! So in this connection, we are going to keep this page - what used to be our campaign Facebook page - up and running. I am going to be focusing on the causes I’m most passionate about - fighting for our consumers, advocating for addiction recovery, and doing everything I can to make sure we advance a progressive, pro-people agenda here in Florida!
