Our country is in a revolutionary moment. The need for a strong, functional progressive party has never been greater.
Ellison has the unique ability to move our party away from dependence on corporate donations and DC consultants, with a laser focus on building the grassroots, neighborhood by neighborhood, municipality by municipality, county by county, and state by state.
As a member of Congress and a leader of the progressive movement, Keith has been a clear and passionate voice for all people. He will inspire and motivate Democrats to seize this moment in history.
The DPCF strongly urges Florida’s DNC members to cast their votes for Representative Keith Ellison.
