Jason Pizzo to lead Florida Senate Democrats in 2024

by Margaret Willard

Senate Democrats have elected Hollywood Sen. Jason Pizzo to lead them during the 2024-26 term.

The Senate Democratic Caucus unanimously chose Pizzo, a prominent figure in the party, as Leader-Designate.

Pizzo said the role comes with a “sense of duty I am thrilled to undertake.”

The move comes less than three months after party members elected Pizzo Leader Pro Tempore for the 2022-24 term alongside current Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book.

A former prosecutor, Pizzo was rumored as a potential challenger to Gov. Ron DeSantis last year. Pizzo instead won re-election unopposed, donating some leftover campaign funds to Democratic candidates.
