Wanting help in turning the Sunshine State back blue, the recently elected state Democratic Party Chair spoke to Florida’s largest Democratic club in Florida on Saturday.
The event was held at the Colony Cottage in Sumter County,
where Stephen Bittel urged the 2,000 members of The Villages Democratic Club to knock on doors
get people registered as well as unite behind the Democrat selected to run against Gov. Rick Scott next year
as well as the Democrat running in the 2020 presidential race.
Bittel added that President Donald Trump is pushing an agenda
that will leave 24 million people without health insurance
acknowledged Trump’s recent and controversial firing of FBI director James Comey.
“This is not the America that I dream of, that I grew up in, this it is not the America that you want to leave your kids and grandchildren,”
standing at the podium in a packed meeting room.
“So we have work to do, together.”
CEO of Terranova Corporation and a major Democratic fundraiser,
Bittel was elected in January to lead the Florida party
after its humiliating presidential defeat by about 113,000 votes.
