The Florida Democratic Party congratulates all of the presidential hopefuls that took part in the DNC’s first Democratic Presidential Primary Debate and show Florida all the wonderful and diverse ideas the Democratic Party has to offer.
Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, stated:
“It was wonderful listening to all of our candidates discuss their ideas, their stories, and how they would handle being the leader of the free world. They reminded the American people of what being presidential looks like. Whomever our nominee may be, I know the party and the United States will be better off with them than the current occupant of the White House.”
Florida Democrats have already begun an aggressive effort to lay the infrastructure for the eventual Democratic nominee to win Florida in 2020: in partnership with the DNC’s Organizing Corp 2020 program the FDP has 90 field organizers on the ground who are working to register hundreds of thousands of voters ahead of the 2020 election, and the FDP is making a multi-million dollar investment to organize and communicate with communities of color — including advertising in key outlets and the launch of a new, weekly Spanish language radio program on Radio Actualidad. Florida Democrats have also launched a year-round voter protection and education department.
