We are just over 4 months away from the general election, and it's more important than ever that we show voters that Florida is worth fighting for. Last week's debate performance was not a reflection of the kind of president Biden is, and Trump spent the entire debate lying about his record. The truth is — the more people hear from Donald Trump, the more they remember how much they dislike him.

Instead of agonizing, Florida Democrats were on the ground doing the work organizing. Over the weekend, we welcomed former U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis to Florida and hosted 6 organizing events with labor partners to kickoff an organizing blitz before Election Day. 

We are only 50 days away from the August 20 primary election. As we get closer to Election Day, we must recommit to the hardest fought election of our lifetimes – the people of our state, and our nation are counting on us. 

In solidarity,

Nikki Fried
Florida Democratic Party

NEW AD: I Know | Biden-Harris 2024

Last Friday in North Carolina, President Biden showed that when you get knocked down, you get right back up. 

Today, Team Biden-Harris 2024 is launching a powerful new ad, “I Know,” echoing the same message and driving the contrast between Donald Trump, who consistently lies to the American people, and Joe Biden, who will tell the truth.

In the ad, President Biden directly calls out Trump for his lies on the debate stage, from his false claims about the “great economy he created” to the pandemic response he botched, and his biggest lie of the night: trying to avoid responsibility for the insurrection he encouraged on January 6.

WATCH: I Know | Biden-Harris 2024



This weekend the Florida Democratic Party launched our first, of what will be many, organizing days of action with key Labor groups by hosting a statewide kickoff for our 2024 grassroots voter registration campaign. Democratic members of the Central Labor Councils including AFL-CIO, SEIU, Classroom Teachers, and Teamsters, met with local DEC representatives in Leon, Duval, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Orange, Broward, and Miami-Dade connecting over 100 grassroots organizers, activists, and volunteers.

These events were made even more special with the addition of Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried, FDP Co-Chair for Labor Outreach and EVP of SEIU1199 Roxey Nelson, President of the Florida Democratic Labor Caucus Patricia Farley and former Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis joining to provide words of inspiration and encouragement as we continue to center the issues of working people and labor within the Democratic Party outreach programs.
