Congressional Candidate Jameel McCline Announces Endorsement From the Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police

DELRAY BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2014) - Jameel McCline, a Democratic candidate to represent Florida's 20th Congressional District is proud to announce that he has received the full endorsement of The Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police.

"Mr. McCline, is an advocate for his community and believes in personal responsibility. He will actively serve his constituents as an effective legislator. We believe Jameel has the confidence to do what is right for all Florida citizens. He will make the tough decisions needed in Washington with a common sense approach to do the business of the people," said James W. Preston, President of the Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police.

The Fraternal Order of Police is the world's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 325,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges across the United States. They are the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities.

This endorsement is a tremendous vote of confidence for Mr. McCline considering his real life experiences of falling on the wrong side of the law, being convicted and incarcerated for gun running in his early teens in New York. After paying his dues for his crimes with five hard years in two of New York's toughest prisons, Mr. McCline became a world class championship boxer with absolutely no amateur boxing experience. His life is a testament to making mistakes, paying your dues and turning your life around despite the obstacles.

"I have a deep respect and admiration for the men and women that dedicate their lives to enforcing law and order while upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States of America. I am deeply honored to receive this key endorsement from the Florida State Lodge of Fraternal Order of Police," stated Jameel McCline, Congressional Candidate for Florida's 20th District.
