At First Annual #LeadBlue, Florida Democrats Are Fired Up and Ready to Win


Over 1,600 Democrats from every corner of Florida came together today to celebrate our party’s successes and look toward November. A few highlights of the Florida Democratic Party's successes tonight:

  • We shattered our fundraising record, raising over $1.1 million for this year’s dinner. Democrats, from President Bill Clinton to the neighborhood volunteer knocking on doors and making phone calls, pitched in to make this an historic success.
  • We broke the all-time turnout record. More than 1,600 Democrats attended the Leadership Blue Dinner to hear from President Bill Clinton and prepare to defeat Rick Scott.
  • Democrats are fired up and ready to win. The energy in our Party today is nothing short of incredible. The campaign has already begun, and we are working harder than ever before.

“This year’s dinner is the Florida Democratic Party’s largest fundraising dinner ever. The grassroots are fired up and ready to defeat Rick Scott and his Republican allies in November, and the momentum is on our side. We’ve set a new fundraising record — over $1.1 million in one night — and we had the biggest attendance on record. Tonight, with the help of President Bill Clinton, Florida Democrats have said with one voice that they are fired up for victory in November,” said Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Allison Tant.
