This week I attended our county Democratic Party Steering Committee meeting. We have several key races in the 2014 season, starting with next month’s special election to fill the vacant seat in Florida’s 13th Congressional District. Alex Sink is the Democratic candidate, and our county members are already canvassing and phone banking with her campaign. We’re also working to reelect State Rep. Amanda Murphy in Florida House District 36, and to elect Beverly Ledbetter in District 38. We also have candidates in county races and, while we don’t yet know the Democratic candidate, we’ll be working hard to replace Gov. Rick Scott. It will be a busy year, but we’re committed to turning our county, state, and Congress blue.
