In response to Donald Trump’s rallies in Pensacola and The Villages on Friday, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement:
“The last thing Floridians need is for Donald Trump to host more potential super spreader rallies across our state. What we do need, however, is a president capable of putting Floridians ahead of his own self-interest and get this pandemic under control. More than 16,000 people have died in Florida because of COVID-19, yet President Trump continues to ignore the crisis and mislead the public.
“Floridians are standing between Donald Trump and four more years in the White House. We must exercise that power and vote early for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, leaders we can trust to manage this pandemic and bring back our jobs. Make sure every single one of your friends, family, and neighbors has a plan to vote at iwillvote.com.”
Congressman Lawson Statement on Mike Pence’s Visit to North Florida
In response to Mike Pence’s reported visit to Jacksonville and Tallahassee on Saturday, Congressman Al Lawson released the following statement:
“As the head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, Pence has some explaining to do in Jacksonville and Tallahassee. Vice President Pence’s visit this Saturday will only remind voters how the Trump-Pence administration abandoned them during the coronavirus pandemic, failing to lead a national response and refusing to negotiate additional federal relief for the hundreds of thousands of Floridians who lost their jobs during this crisis. There is no excuse for the United States having 4% of the world’s population, but 20% of the world’s coronavirus cases and deaths.
“We’ve seen enough to know that four more years of Trump’s chaos would only lead to more suffering and uncertainty. We’re turning out at the polls, and we’re voting for Joe Biden to bring competence and compassion back to the White House.”
