Florida Democrats Respond to President Biden’s State of the Union Address

Tonight, President Biden delivered his annual State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:

“Florida Democrats remain thankful for President Biden’s brand of clear, visionary leadership,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “His State of the Union address showed a drastic contrast between the Biden-Harris vision for America and the anti-democratic vision pushed by Donald Trump. 

“Trump has promised to be a ‘dictator on day one’ and has made no secret of his plans to attack our democracy from within — thankfully, President Biden can be trusted to defend our democracy, grow our economy, and keep making life better for all Floridians. We have to re-elect him in November, at all costs.”

“President Biden has been truly instrumental in fighting back against the GOP, and has continued to push an agenda that looks out for everyday Floridians,” said Senator Shevrin Jones, a member of President Biden’s National Advisory Board, to an online gathering of Florida Democrats this evening. “I joined the president’s campaign over four years ago in Iowa — I believed in him then, and I believe in him now. 

“When my Republican colleagues talk about all the ‘wins’ that they have, they should say ‘Thank you, Joe Biden,’ because it has been our president who has stepped in where Florida leaders have misstepped. President Biden has raised the bar of what we should expect out of a president, and I am proud to stand with him, Chair Nikki Fried, and every individual who believes in democracy, to ensure that President Biden has another four years in the White House.”
