The dental hygienist who has not been a member of the Democratic Party for more than 20 years has finally become a candidate for the U.S. Senate in South Tampa.
Dr. James Denton, a dentist who has worked in South Florida for more-than 30 years, announced his candidacy on Sunday.
Denton, who grew up in the city, has long served as an outspoken critic of Republican efforts to roll back state and federal laws.
In a video posted to YouTube on Sunday, Denton says he is not interested in serving as a lobbyist for a party that is against his “deepest convictions.”
He says he will “never vote for the Democratic candidate.”
He adds that his family has always been a Republican, and the fact that Democrats are now trying to control the state government is “a disgrace.”
The dentist has been outspoken in his criticisms of Republicans in Congress.
Dentists across the country have taken up Denton’s call, saying that his opposition to the Affordable Care Act and other health care legislation is not partisan.
Dental hygists, dentists and other medical professionals have taken to social media to share their own endorsements.
Denton posted an open letter on Sunday to Republican members of Congress and asked them to be mindful of their duty to the public and not to take any political advantage.DENTIST, DEMOCRATIC CHAIRS SAY THEY DON’T SUPPORT HOMICIDE DENTIST: Democratic congresswoman says she will vote for her party’s presumptive nominee, but adds that she’s not interested In being a lobbyist For a party That supports mass murder.
In the video posted on Sunday by the South Tampa Dentistry Association, Dontreas’ father, Dr. Joseph Denton Jr., a retired dentist, said that he was shocked to learn that his son is a Democrat.
“We’re very disappointed,” he said.
“It’s a bit of a surprise to us, because I never really knew that.”
Dr. Dontres said he has been a Democrat for 25 years and has never voted for a Republican.
Dontreacontinued the dentistry practice in 2006, and has remained a member since then.
“I feel like I’ve always been very supportive of the state of Florida, and I think the people of this state support that,” he told the Tampa Bay Times in a telephone interview.
“My goal is to see that people in this state, I don’t think are as divided as I would hope.”
A dental hygmienist at South Florida’s St. Lucie County Health Department, Dret is also a member and supporter of the South Florida Democrats, the group that has endorsed Dontreyas bid.
The dental hygermist said he was motivated to run by the recent murder of a Florida man in the state.
“There’s no excuse for murder,” Dret told the newspaper.
“We can’t let this kind of murder continue.”
Dontres has also taken to Twitter to make a case for why Democrats should have the right to dictate what health care providers and doctors do in the states.
He said he is an “outspoken advocate” for the interests of the people.
He is also not a Democrat, he said, but a Republican who is pro-life.
The dentist also noted that Dontrexes father, the former South Florida Mayor and current congressman, is a member.
“The fact that they’ve endorsed him is a victory for the people and I’m proud of them,” Dontrea said.DETROIT DENTISTS CHAIRMAN SAYS ‘I DON’TWIST’ ON ‘MURDER’ DEBATE DENTICAL HOUR, DETROIT: A Michigan dental hygenic told The Detroit News that the discussion around whether to call the death of a young man a homicide or suicide is “very much like the debate on abortion.
