Posted

The Florida Democratic Party held a successful weekend of action with over 40 events in 23 counties, with U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and FDP hosting joint Nelson's Neighbors events across the state.

Senator Bill Nelson joined dozens of supporters in Orange County to make phone calls on Saturday, while his wife Grace met with canvassers and attended a phone bank in Duval County.

"We made thousands of phone-calls and knocked on hundreds of doors, signing Democrats up to vote-by-mail, registering people to vote, and recruiting volunteers to help us get-out-the vote this summer," said FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo.

"The enthusiasm and support we are seeing across the state continues to encourage me and makes me proud to lead the Florida Democratic Party!" said Chair Rizzo, "The Blue Wave rolls on!"

The weekend of action marks a kick-off to a summer of activism, where Democrats are committed to registering thousands of Floridians to vote-by-mail, knocking on doors in all 67 counties, registering thousands of new voters and communicating in new ways about our candidates.
