Major announcements, events, endorsements and more in this post!
First, we've got a long way to go to meet our $500,000 goal for our advertising package funding. Please donate what you can, when you can, to help us elect Rebekah and beat Matt Gaetz! We need to make sure everyone in the district hears our message, which means reaching them via phone, email, on the web, in the mail, and on television and radio!
!!! ENDORSEMENT ALERT !!!
Right before the primary, where Rebekah crushed her DeSantis-backed opponent, Rebekah received the endorsement of the Progressive Turnout Project - a huge victory for the campaign.
Earlier this week, Rebekah gained another endorsement: Candidates for Common Good
Labor Day Weekend is upon us, which for the Emerald Coast means sun, sand and lots of traffic!
We'll be walking our beaches this weekend handing out flags, flyers and info about one of my personal heroes, Francis "Fanny" Perkins - the first female cabinet member in United States history and the architect of our modern labor laws.
Our vision for labor policy comes from Fanny's efforts to fight for workers, their families, and American prosperity. Did you know Rebekah received the endorsement of Teamsters Local 991?
NEW OFFICE OPENING SOON!
We'll be opening our office in downtown Pensacola this weekend! You will be able to come by, pitch in, pick up signs, buy merch from our store (including shirts, bumper stickers and more!)
