The Florida Democratic Party announced Friday the appointment of Mitchell Berger as Finance Chair for the Democratic Coordinated Campaign. Berger is a South Florida attorney who has been involved with the Democratic Party for years, including serving as the Democratic National Committees Federal Victory Chair in 2000, co-leader of the Campaign For Change in 2008 and as a member of the National Finance Board of Obama Victory Fund.
“There could not be a more exciting time to serve as Finance Chair of the Florida Democratic Party,” Berger said. “I am proud to be able to contribute to the efforts the party is doing to elect bold and progressive leaders. From Andrew Gillum’s historic election, to the re-election of Senator Bill Nelson, and with the balance of the House and Senate hanging on Florida’s efforts, the work we are doing could not be more important.”
“We are so thrilled to have Mitchell Berger as our Finance Chair at such a critical time for our party, our state, and our nation,” said FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo. “Florida Democrats began their field efforts late last year, we have won six special elections in a row, and have knocked more than 1.5 million doors and had the highest Democratic primary turnout since 1978. And now that Florida families have our winning ticket, the coordinated ground game is ready to deliver wins in November. I am confident that Mitchell will do everything he can to support our Winning Ticket, and help take us over the edge in November.”
As Finance Chair, Berger will play a significant role in helping to raise money for the coordinated campaign, which is a statewide effort to elect Democrats up-and-down the ballot. Berger founded Berger Singerman in 1985 and serves as Co-Chair of the firm. He has over 30 years of successful representation in commercial disputes including Fortune 500 companies.
The “Winning Ticket” is the Florida Democratic Party coordinated campaign dedicated to supporting and electing a record number of Democrats in Florida in 2018, including Senator Nelson, Mayor Andrew Gillum, our Democratic cabinet nominees and thousands of Democrats from school board to the state Senate. The Florida Democratic Party and our Democratic candidates are running a presidential level statewide ground game with paid organizers in every corner of the state for the first time in a midterm in recent history.
