Congressman Tony Cárdenas Endorses Val Demings in Florida's 10th Congressional District

Val Demings

Yesterday Congressman Tony Cárdenas announced his endorsement of Val Demings, former Chief of Police for the City of Orlando and Democratic candidate for the newly-established 10th Congressional District.

Cárdenas issued the following statement:

"The decision was easy - Val Demings ran in 2012 in a much tougher district, nearly upsetting a well-funded incumbent, showing that she is willing to fight for her community not only when it's easy, but when it's hard. Her thirty-year record of public service proves that she will serve as a powerful, unifying voice for the people of Central Florida. I look forward to working together on shared priorities including job creation and expanding educational and workforce training opportunities."

U.S. Representative Tony Cárdenas

Cárdenas has served as the United States Representative for California's 29th congressional district since January 2013. California's 29th congressional district is in the north central San Fernando Valley, and includes the communities of Van Nuys, San Fernando, Pacoima, Arleta, Panorama City, Sylmar, and parts of Sun Valley, and North Hollywood.


The boundaries of Florida's 10th Congressional District were created by the Florida Supreme Court on December 2, 2015. Here is a link to the decision. See page 108 for a map of the Approved Congressional Redistricting Plan.

As the map excerpt below shows, the new District 10 takes in all of Northwest, West and Southwest Orange County, including Apopka.
