This week I attended the steering committee meeting of my local Democratic Executive Committee. Our discussion focused on tomorrow’s special election in Florida House District 36, and our work to support Democrat Amanda Murphy. This special election is the only state legislative race of the year, so both parties are committing all of their resources. On Thursday I worked in Ms. Murphy’s campaign office, and I was stunned and delighted by the combined efforts of the Florida Democratic Party and our local Democrats. We folded over 500 flyers and stapled them to door-hangers, and were told that was almost enough to equip their planned canvassing routes … for Friday.
Early returns show this race is incredibly close. If you can volunteer today, please contact Amanda Murphy’s campaign office and ask how you can help.
