Statement on Florida Democratic Primary Result
Chair Tant Congratulates Secretary Clinton on Her Primary Victory
Tonight, following Secretary Hillary Clinton’s victory in the 2016 Florida Democratic presidential primary, FDP Chair Allison Tant issued the following statement:
“I want to extend my congratulations to Secretary Hillary Clinton on her victory in Florida’s 2016 Democratic Presidential Preference Primary. Both Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders have inspired more than 1.3 million Florida Democrats to make their voices heard, and we look forward to continuing to build this grassroots energy as we head towards November.
“The contrast between the two parties in this campaign could not be more clear. Americans have seen a Democratic primary based on a debate over substance and a Republican primary based on bigotry, violence, and nativism. Floridians know we’ve made tremendous progress under President Obama and know we cannot turn back the clock tot he policies of the Bush era — let alone the policies of the 1950s as Trump would have it.
“Florida Democrats will not be outworked and we will not be out-organized in this campaign, and we look forward to delivering the Sunshine State to the Democratic nominee for the third time in a row.”
