DNC Announces Investments in the Florida Democratic Party
October 27, 2017
Today, the DNC announced a new investment in the Florida Democratic Party to support their efforts in electing Democratic Mayor Rick Kriseman and Democrats up and down the ballot. As Mayor, Kriseman has reduced violent crime and continued the St. Pete’s Promise program to give at-risk students more resources and opportunities to succeed.
“The new DNC is about electing Democrats from the school board to the Oval Office, so we are doubling-down on our commitment to re-elect Mayor Rick Kriseman and electing Democrats up and down the ticket,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “St. Petersburg deserves the proven leadership of Mayor Kriseman, who will continue to tackle the big challenges facing Floridians and who has worked to reduce poverty and provide opportunity to every citizen of St. Pete. Unlike Rick Baker, there's no one Mayor Kriseman won't stand up to—including Rick Scott and Donald Trump.”
