WEST PALM BEACH, FL — Today, Lois Frankel’s campaign for Congress announced its “Veterans for Lois Frankel” committee, which is composed of South Florida military veterans who are supporting Frankel’s campaign.
The committee is co-chaired by Marian Wells (U.S. Army, ret.), Aron Augustus (U.S. Army, ret.), and Ben Lubin (U.S. Marines, ret.), Frankel’s son.
