Florida Democratic Party Welcomes Our Presidential Hopefuls to the Second Night of the Miami Debate

Posted

On the second day of the Democratic Presidential Primary Debate on NBC, the Florida Democratic Party welcomes the second group of presidential hopefuls to our beautiful city to discuss the issues that matter to Floridians.

Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, stated:

"Today is the second night of the first Democratic Presidential Primary Debate and I welcome tonight's presidential hopefuls Michael Bennet, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, John Hickenlooper, Bernie Sanders, Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang. Florida and America will be tuning in to learn about how you would help people’s lives. These debates showcase the strength of the Democratic Party’s ideas and what we have to offer the American people."

Florida Democrats have already begun an aggressive effort to lay the infrastructure for the eventual Democratic nominee to win Florida in 2020. In partnership with the DNC’s Organizing Corp 2020 program the FDP has 90 field organizers on the ground who are working to register hundreds of thousands of voters, and the FDP is making a multi-million dollar investment to organize and communicate with communities of color -- including advertising in key outlets and the launch of a new, weekly Spanish language radio program on Radio Actualidad. Florida Democrats have also launched a year-round voter protection and education department.
