Rizzo today announced the support of Reps. Alcee Hastings of Delray Beach, Ted Deutch of Boca Raton and Lois Frankel of West Palm Beach.

The Florida Democratic Party will vote Dec. 9 on a successor to Stephen Bittel, who resigned this month after being accused of inappropriate behavior toward women.

Four women are vying to replace Bittel: Rizzo, Brevard County Democratic Chairwoman Stacey Patel, Hillsborough County Democratic State Committeewoman Alma Gonzalez, and Service Employees International Union Florida President Monica Russo of Miami. Russo needs a change in state party bylaws to be eligible.

The four candidates meet tonight for a forum in Miami.
