Last night, South Florida voters chose Annette Taddeo to represent them in the State Senate. This special election victory for a Democrat shocked politicos and pundits alike across the state.
Let me tell you a secret, though — she won because she ran this campaign on her progressive principles, stuck to her values, and led a massive grassroots field program to contact voters. She won without help from corrupt special interests and instead relied on small dollar contributions from activists and advocates like you — even as the Republicans outspent her.
This is the key to victory in Florida, and I believe it is the only path forward. What we saw last night was nothing short of incredible — and if enough of us are willing to come together, we can see it again and again in every Florida election from here on out.
Will you join us in keeping up the momentum after this tremendous victory by chipping in to our campaign to turn Florida blue today >>
This is proof that the concept of abandoning our values and selling out on our principles is both ineffective and unnecessary. Annette showed our state last night that it is absolutely possible to run as a progressive in Florida and win without giving up what you truly believe in.
That’s how we’re running this campaign too, and I hope you’ll join us in making our next progressive victory possible.
Congratulations to Senator Elect Annette Taddeo. I can’t wait to see what you accomplish for South Florida, and I look forward to working with you as our next Governor.
Bring it home,
