7/22/2022 | TAKING THE HILL PAC, LED BY FORMER CONGRESSMAN PATRICK J. MURPHY, ENDORSES BEN SORENSEN FOR FLORIDA CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 23
FORT LAUDERDALE — The Ben Sorensen for Congress Campaign on Friday announced that Taking the Hill PAC, led by former Army Under Secretary and Pennsylvania Congressman Patrick J. Murphy, has endorsed Sorensen's candidacy for FL-23.

"Ben Sorensen is a proven fighter who Democrats can count on to work for them—not Ron DeSantis," Murphy said. "I'm proud to endorse and fully support Ben Sorensen for Congress. We need more members of the House of Representatives who have firsthand military experience to help protect Americans from threats — both foreign and domestic. I am confident Ben's military training will guide him while he fights for our democratic values in Washington, D.C."

Sorensen, a lifelong Democrat and the current Vice Mayor of the City of Fort Lauderdale, is running for Florida's 23rd Congressional District. The Primary Election is Aug. 23.

Sorensen added: "I am honored to have the former Under Secretary of the Army's endorsement. I will bring the same tenacity and military focus with me when I'm elected to Congress to fight for my constituents. I will be relentless in the fight for voting rights, women's reproductive rights, choice and equality, and gun control reform. I look forward to your vote."

Sorensen has served more than 14 years in the U.S. Navy Reserve. He's currently a Lieutenant Commander at U.S. Southern Command, where he works with allies in South America and Central America to build strategic intelligence, as well as military and economic partnerships.

Ben started a small business to work with Fortune 500 companies and nonprofit organizations to create better leaders and foster enhanced collaboration and empathy within the workforce, leading to greater organizational success.

Ben and his wife, Anna, who works in the arts, live in Fort Lauderdale with their two young daughters, Alexandra and Louise, and their rescue dog, Ginger.
