Torrens Appeals Judge's Ruling, Vows to Fight for Florida's Now Disenfranchised Voters

Fights to remain on ballot days before Primary Election. TAMPA, Fla. – Ryan Torrens, Democratic candidate for Florida Attorney General, filed an immediate notice of appeal Friday night and requested the First District Court of Appeal to halt the implementation of a lower court judge’s 11-th hour ruling. The ruling Friday removed him from Tuesday’s Democratic primary ballot due to a contribution law technicality – a move the court undertook, disenfranchising the tens of thousands of citizens who have already voted for his campaign. Torrens’ appeal was based on the fact, verified by credit union documents, which the court took into evidence, but ignored in its order, that the funds in question

Ryan Torrens Wants to Put Consumers First as Florida Attorney General

While Florida is considered a swing state in presidential elections, Republicans have dominated state government for decades. No Democrat has been elected Governor of Florida since 1994, and Republicans have controlled both chambers of the Florida State Legislature since 1997. Along with a supermajority in the State House, Republicans also have a state government triplex, meaning that they hold the governorship, the state attorney general’s office, and the secretary of state’s office. For over two decades now, checks and balances in Florida state government have been non-existent, with no entities of state government able to hold the GOP accountable for its discriminatory agenda. But that co

Torrens Urges Opponent Join Him in Dropping Lawsuits

Proposes Joint Press Conference with Primary Opponent Tampa, FL - The Democratic primary for Florida attorney general has recently taken a very unfortunate – and very negative – turn. My primary opponent filed a lawsuit against me to try to get me thrown off the ballot due to a technicality. Having no choice but to defend my integrity, and the integrity of my wife, I brought a libel countersuit against my opponent. This sad, negative turn of events in this critical race is potentially catastrophic to the Democrats’ chances of taking back the attorney general’s office in November. When Democrats tear each other apart, Republicans win, and the people lose. Florida cannot afford a continuation

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!
