Florida Democrats Announce Leadership Blue Gala Keynote Speaker

Today, the Florida Democratic Party announced Senator John Fetterman will deliver the keynote address at the 2024 Leadership Blue Gala on Saturday, May 4.  

“Florida Democrats are thrilled to welcome Senator Fetterman to the Sunshine State,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “Senator John Fetterman is not your traditional politician. He is a powerful voice for the Democratic Party and embodies the spirit of Florida Democrats — never backing down from a fight. His grassroots victory to defend the Senate majority in 2022 is a blueprint for battleground states like Florida to combat extremism and win one of the most important Senate races in the nation in 2024. We look forward to welcoming the Senator to Florida this weekend as our keynote speaker.”

John Fetterman won the first open U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania in more than a decade, beating Trump-endorsed Dr. Oz in the most hotly contested race in the 2022 midterms. He overcame a near-fatal stroke just days before the primary election and later returned to the campaign trail to win the general election by 5%.

The Florida Democratic Party will host Senator John Fetterman during Leadership Blue Weekend from May 3-5 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. For more information and to view the complete schedule, visit
