Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo congratulated Vice President Joe Biden on becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee for president of the United States and thanked Sen. Bernie Sanders for his tireless advocacy for working people:
“The Democratic primary has made our party stronger and more prepared to take on Donald Trump in the general election. I’m so grateful to each of the candidates, including Senator Sanders, for building grassroots enthusiasm and showing Americans that Democrats are the ones fighting for them. We are proud to stand with Joe Biden and will do everything we can to help him win Florida.
“Florida Democrats began building our campaign infrastructure last July. Today, we have more than 100 staff and 15,000 volunteers who are trained and ready to defeat Donald Trump and win with Joe Biden.”
