Broward Republican Executive Chair candidate Rico Petrocelli has picked up the endorsement of more that 250 Broward Republican activists. As of November 29, Petrocelli had 254 endorsements from members of the committee. Such a strong showing makes Petrocelli the overwhelming favorite to win Monday’s election.
Petrocelli was endorsed by Coral Spring mayor Vince Boccard, Coral Springs commissioners Dan Daley and Tom Powers as well as Hollywood commissioner Patricia Assef. Petrocelli has been endorsed by the current BREC board.
Petrocelli is running with Christine Butler (vice chair), Mark McCarthy (treasurer) and Cara Christine Pavalock (secretary).
Petrocelli’s opponent, Ms. Karen Harrington was stung by recent reports regarding Alivin Entin, her choice for vice chair. In a 2010 blog https://redbroward.com/2012/11/30/katen-harrington-picks-crist-loving-vice-chair-who-bashes-rubio-palin-tea-party/, Entin blasted Governor Rick Scott, Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Sarah Palin and other “right-wing zealots”. Entin expressed admiration for his “great Governor” Charlie Crist.
