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!

Torrens Urges Opponent Join Him in Dropping Lawsuits

August 19, 2018

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 of the parade of horribles that has been the administration of Pam Bondi. 

 

We need to stop going down the sad, negative road this race is on. The voters expect and deserve better. It is time we put our party and our state ahead of these petty squabbles. It is time for Democrats to lead again. 

 

Now is the time for all Florida Democrats to be looking positively toward the future, advancing our bold agenda for progressive change. With that in mind, I want to propose that Mr. Shaw and I reverse this low-road political path our campaign has suddenly veered onto and return to the high road of discussing solutions that will solve the problems Florida voters – Democrats, independents and Republicans – care about most. 

 

I want to invite Mr. Shaw to join with me in a new public-spirited campaign pledge: Let’s both agree to drop our lawsuits – right now – and instead of meeting in a courtroom on Wednesday to tear each other down, let’s meet for a joint press conference, declaring loud and clear that no matter who prevails in this primary, we will stand united to make sure we elect a Democratic attorney general in November. If we cannot lead on the campaign trail, Florida voters will never trust a Democrat to lead the attorney general’s office. It’s time to stop tearing each other apart so that in November, our Democratic nominee can have the strength and support to lift our people up and take back the attorney general’s office after sixteen years of Republican dominance. 

 

I can only hope that our state party leadership and our state’s most respected Democratic leaders will rise to this crisis and not remain silent on the sidelines (as Washington’s Republicans have done when faced with conduct they know is simply wrong). Voters throughout the state have cheered my promise to not take any contributions from the big corporate special interests I will be overseeing as the people’s attorney general. Having qualified for public funding, my campaign is fully energized. I am looking forward to winning the confidence and votes of Florida Democrats in our Aug. 28 primary – and becoming our state’s next attorney general.
