Florida Democrats Announce New Director of Rapid Response


Today, the Florida Democratic Party, with the Democratic National Committee, announced Frances Swanson has joined the team as the director of rapid response. Swanson will focus on holding Trump accountable for his broken promises to Floridians and the impacts of his cruel policies on the Sunshine State — from his mission to repeal the Affordable Care Act to his desire to sell off Florida’s coastline for offshore drilling.

“We are thrilled to have Frances on the team! We are making early investments needed to build a strong team to send Donald Trump packing in 2020 and her position will play a huge role in that,” said Chair Terrie Rizzo, “The road to the White House runs right through Florida and it is crucial we have someone dedicated to exposing Trump for who he really is — a corrupt and ineffective president who consistently breaks his promises to Floridians.”

Before joining the Florida Democratic Party, Swanson was the Iowa Press Secretary for Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign and the Iowa Media Manager for NextGen America’s youth vote program in 2018.

FDP currently has a staff of over 90, the largest staff for a Democratic State Party in the country. At this time in 2015, the party only had a staff of 20.
