31,000 Floridians Gone

3 mins read

Dear Friends,

One year ago, we learned of the first cases of Covid-19 in Florida.

Since then, we’ve lost 31,000 state residents to the virus, including almost 5,500 in Miami-Dade County alone.

All along, Ron DeSantis has ignored public health expertsblocked the release of information that could help keep us safe, and doled out vaccines as a reward to his big-money donors. And as millions lost their jobs, he oversaw a state unemployment system so ineffective, it was rated the worst in the nation.

But DeSantis isn’t stopping there. In fact, rumor has is that he’ll run for president in 2024.

If we want to keep Ron DeSantis from having a serious shot at the White House, it’s up to us to #RetireDeSantis next year by electing a Democrat to replace him.

To do that, we need to build a strong ground game here in Miami-Dade County, and we have to start now. That means fielding an army of canvassers to engage existing voters on the issues that matter, and expanding the electorate by registering new voters.

We can’t do that without your support. Will you chip in $20.22 to help out?

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Better yet, let us know that we can count on you by making a monthly $20.22 donation.

We could not be more grateful for your support. Onward to 2022!

Yours in the fight,

Steve Simeonidis
Chair, Miami-Dade Democrats

P.S. Thanks to your contributions last week, we raised almost $1,250 for Texas relief efforts! Many thanks to those who chipped in.

Are you a sustaining donor? Even $5 a month makes a big difference.

The local Miami-Dade Democratic Party is a self-funded, membership-driven organization of dedicated volunteers. 

Republican leadership has been a disaster for our state, and for our nation. In 2022 we will break the Republican stranglehold on Tallahassee by kicking Ron DeSantis out of office. While we’re at it, we’ll get Marco Rubio, one of Donald Trump’s biggest enablers, out of office and send a Democrat to represent us in the United States Senate instead. We can’t do that without you—support our work with a monthly donation of any amount here.

DemCast is an advocacy-based 501(c)4 nonprofit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks. If you appreciate our content, please consider a small monthly donation.
