Florida Elections 2018: No surprise, Organize Florida endorses Democrats over Republicans

Organize Florida and its members have released a slate of endorsements for the November elections who will champion the working class and fight for fair and equitable communities that include access to affordable healthcare and expanding Medicaid, affordable housing, good wages and safe communities.

Organize Florida again strongly endorses Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum for Governor of Florida for his unwavering support of working class families.

We also are intensifying efforts to get out the vote in more than 10 counties throughout the state as part of the Win Justice coalition.

The Win Justice coalition, a groundbreaking partnership to build lasting power in our communities and win key elections in battleground states, surpassed over one million door knocks this week through a seven figure statewide canvass operation, signifying one of the largest get out the vote canvass effort in the state. The goal is to exceed 1.3 million door knocks by Election Day. Through phone calls, texting, and online paid digital programs, the coalition has engaged with well over two million Floridians. The coalition is encouraging voters to vote for Andrew Gillum, Bill Nelson, Amendment 4 and a progressive ticket down the ballot.

“We are at a history making moment in Florida,” said Debbie Soto, president of Organize Florida. “The last 20 years of Republican rule has failed working families. We are proud to be supporting candidates and issues across the state and up and down the ballot that stand for progressive ideals and are true change makers.”
