Rebekah Jones is first 2022 Democratic Congressional Candidate in Florida to Qualify via Petition!
Because of your amazing support, I am proud to announce that I am the first Democratic candidate running for Congress this year in the entire state of Florida to qualify for the ballot via petitions!
Wait, it gets better....
Not only did we qualify first out of every Democratic candidate for Congress in Florida, but we did so with voter support from every single one of Florida's 67 counties1 - something no candidate has accomplished in modern history!
I want to give you my sincere and heartfelt thanks for the continued outpouring of support I have found across the state. This sends a message to Gaetz, Desantis and all the fringe GOP that Florida has had it with their anti-democratic, anti-American tactics, and is ready to elect new, young leaders who fight for truth and transparency in November!
To be the first Democrat running for Congress to qualify, and to have done so with so much statewide support, shows our collective determination and strength in winning this November!
If you are a Florida resident and helped us reach our petition goal this year, please consider helping other candidates who are actively seeking signatures. I've compiled the petitions of those who need them here, which you can download, print and send to our office. We will pay the processing fees for these candidates to show our support in getting qualified candidates on the ballot for this November!
Our campaign mailing address is:
PO BOX 1259, Gulf Breeze, FL 32562
More good news from the campaign team:
We also received public support from the world's leading climate scientist and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Dr. Michael Mann this weekend, and added climate advocate and actor Mark Ruffalo to our list of large donors supporting the campaign!
As a climate scientist by background, having the support of the environmental and scientific community has been incredibly valuable to me. We now have two Nobel Prize nominees and one Nobel Prize winner behind us!
