The Florida Democratic Party is proud to celebrate Tom Keen’s election as the next member of the Florida House of Representatives from District 35.
Tom Keen is a decorated 21-year military veteran, a former Naval Flight Officer, and successful businessman. A committed progressive with a long history of public service, Tom’s core values of honor, courage, and commitment have driven him to run for office and create positive, lasting change in Florida.
“Florida Democrats rallied behind Tom Keen,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “We saw unprecedented enthusiasm and investment in this special election from all corners of the state, as well as many of our national partners. We proved that Florida is still worth fighting for, and that a well-organized, well-funded Democratic campaign can still win a swing seat in this state.
“I have to congratulate Tom most of all, for working tirelessly to prove to Democratic primary voters that their faith in him, and in Florida’s future, is worth it.. The Keen campaign left it all on the field — thanks to them, we’re one seat closer to ending the Republican supermajority in Tallahassee.
“Florida Democrats are serious about changing the way things work in Tallahassee, and tonight’s victory is an important first step to taking back Florida. With this win, all eyes are on Florida this fall — we’re ready to carry this momentum, excitement, and work ethic into election season.”
