Flip Florida blue!

There are two really close races in Florida that will be key to the future of this country. That's why I've come to Florida to rally Democrats and get out the vote.

Senator Bill Nelson is fighting for re-election against Rick Scott. It's critical that we hold on to every Senate seat we can, and we won't retake the Senate without re-electing Bill Nelson.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is a true progressive running a groundbreaking campaign to be Florida's first African-American governor, competing against a far-right Republican who associates with white supremacists and launches thinly-veiled racist attacks. Gillum is unapologetic about fighting for our values: at a debate last week, he boldly and clearly called out his opponent's ties to racists.

Join me in supporting Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson.

The outcome will affect the entire country: if Republicans win, they'll have a green light to implement blatant voter suppression schemes in Florida in 2020, potentially swinging the presidential election.

The good news is that both of our candidates are gaining in the polls. But it's going to be extremely close, and we can't take anything for granted in Florida.

Join me in supporting Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson.
