State Rep. Dan Daley, a former Republican-turned-Democrat from Coral Springs is arguably one of the most likeable and approachable hombre in Florida’s House Democratic Caucus. Rep. Daley is considered a moderate Democrat who has been one of the strongest advocates for gun reform as a result of the Parkland High School shooting in February 2018. When he is not legislating or boating, Daley can be found at your local cowboy country bar line-dancing with the masses.
Just kidding. Daley loves him some country music, but word on the street is that he has two left feet.
